Scott MacLean, DDS
Surgical practices that rely on referrals can use technology to plan every case as a team. Fewer unexpected outcomes and downstream challenges for the restoring dentist will strengthen the referral relationship. Adoption of a coordinated digital workflow can also maximize patient satisfaction through immediate loading with precisely matched TempShell provisional restorations and immediate, screw-retained provisionals with the Temporary Snap Abutment. The incorporation of navigated and guided technology has demonstrated predictability for the delivery of dental implants. Three dimensional implant placement offers much more than routine surgical accuracy and precision. The intuitive software interface makes planning rapid and simple. Patient-satisfying immediacy can then become a realistic routine option.
Fundamentals of bone grafting and management of peri-implant and radicular soft tissues
Alexandre Aalam, DDS
Once a tooth is extracted, there is a natural healing cascade accompanied by irreversible changes. Grafting techniques (hard and soft tissue) and prosthetic manipulations are needed to restore lost hard and soft tissues and ensure proper development of the implant emergence profile. Refinements in surgical approaches, combined with incorporation of bioactive modifiers, have substantially reduced the morbidity of surgical procedures while improving success rate and patient comfort.
100 CAD extra to attend Dr. Aalam’s hands-on specimen workshop, capped at 25 participants. Sponsored in part by PRF Canada.
Breakthrough surfaces for tissue integration at every level
Eric Rompen, DDS, PhD
After decades of focusing only on osseointegration and surface roughness, it is time to enter a new era in implantology. Come experience how breakthrough developments in surface technology and surface chemistry benefit osseointegration and – even more importantly – soft-tissue integration for esthetics and long-term tissue health.
Dentists: Are we in good financial health?
Michel M. Couture, DMD, MBA
It may come as a surprise to learn that dentists – professionals with access to incomes above the Canadian average – are not always in good financial position for retirement. So let’s take some time to talk amongst ourselves. In this personal, dynamic conversation, we’ll show you the findings, some comparisons, and – most importantly – some ways to take action.
