Dr. Neil Meredith, Prosthodontist, London, England
Root form dental implant therapy was introduced in Europe over 40 years ago, and in the mid 1980’s in North America. The journey from its inception to today has been revolutionary, with greater understanding of the biological process, advances in surgical adjunct procedures, implant design and the recent introduction of CAD CAM technologies in every facet of the treatment process. The purpose of this presentation is to take a journey from the early days of dental implant therapy, to now and a look at beyond.
Course Learning Objectives:
- Historic review of root form dental Implant therapy.
- Current biologic width concepts and influence on modern dental implant body and platform design principles.
- Update on abutment selection.
- Use of CAD CAM technology, now and future direction.
“DISC is powered by Knowledge Factory”
The Denver Implant Study Club (D.I.S.C) was developed by Dr. Aldo Leopardi, prosthodontist and is produced and powered by The Knowledge Factory. Introduced in February of 2003, it is an ongoing comprehensive study club directed towards the restorative treatment of dental implants.
“Developed by a professional, for professionals…”
This professional study club is unlike any other. The format is a series of lectures with extensive hands-on real world experiences that work with actual clinical scenarios applicable to the majority of dental implant systems available. The study club is prosthodontically driven and directed towards the general dentist. The main objective is to empower doctors and their offices while developing the highest level of medical care, techniques and implant practices.
