Implant Restorative Materials: From High Esthetics to Heavy Load Situations


Single implant restorations need to provide long-term success for anterior esthetics or posterior stress function. Newly developed restorative materials specifically for these implant conditions are now available as a chairside and/or as a laboratory fabricated service. This program will provide you with material science to help you evaluate and restoratively treatment plan with materials that can absorb and disperse chewing forces away from the abutment/ implant assembly for stability and esthetic function. Learn about a consistent workflow that can save you and the patient chair time and deliver predictable results for patients with extreme chewing forces.
