Seminar: The Missing Link in Implant Restorative Dentistry

Presented by Gary Burton, CDT, and Wayne Burrell, CDT, Gibson Dental Designs

Co-sponsored by Gibson Dental Designs and Dentsply Sirona Implants

This program will focus on patient-specific abutments and the simplicity and reliability they bring to the restorative process while allowing for functional and esthetic results for each individual patient. Using the most advanced computer technology, patient-specific abutments are available for all major implant systems and are designed and manufactured to the clinician’s specifications. The benefits of providing an anatomically correct abutment earlier in the healing cycle will be discussed. A review of the coordination and communication between the lab, surgeon and restorative colleague to achieve exceptional results will also be provided.

Upon completion of this program participants will be able to:

  • Appreciate the coordination and communication between the laboratory, surgical and restorative colleagues to achieve exceptional results
  • Distinguish the advantages and disadvantages of utilizing different abutment systems
  • Learn the easiest and most innovative way to restore implants via a CAD/CAM custom abutment system
