Course Description:

Contemporary implant practice has advanced significantly over the past 4 decades.   It is no longer considered appropriate to follow a “bone driven” approach.  Rather a “prosthetic driven” approach is favored.  Careful prosthetic driven planning often leads to the discovery that there is insufficient bone to place implants in correct position.  Bone grafting allows for the “creation” of additional bone in order to accommodate correct implant placement.   When, how and why to utilize this advanced modality will be covered.
