Restoring missing teeth with osseointegrated implants has become routine in contemporary dental practice, yet clinicians often struggle with confidently treatment planning these restorations. In this webinar, Dr Dichter will demystify treatment planning for dental implants. The course focus on posterior single missing teeth, but the concepts apply equally to esthetic planning with implants as well as restoring multiple missing teeth with implants. This course will focus on the restorative component of treatment planning for implants and provide restorative dentists with the information they need to have meaningful treatment planning discussions with other members of their interdisciplinary team.

Learning Objectives

  • Key steps involved with implant treatment planning
  • How and when a diagnostic waxup can be helpful
