In the vast majority of cases, dental implants have become the preferred treatment to replace missing teeth. As a result, implants are now being placed in an increasing number of both general and specialty practices. This throwdown will bring together an Oral Surgeon, a General Dentist, and a Periodontist to discuss and debate some of the specifics of implant surgery – come join the fun!

Topics will include:

  • Modern techniques and standard of care
  • Concepts in implant surgery and restoration
  • Appropriate training for placing implants
  • Management of complications
