Abstract

The placement of dental implants has become one of the hottest topics in implant dentistry. This lecture will feature the concept of single tooth to full mouth reconstruction. The latest implant design, NobelActive, will be used to demonstrate these techniques as used in over 5000 implants. A series of cases with an emphasis on the All-on-Four technique will be used to demonstrate this concept in a step-by-step fashion from diagnosis, to surgery, to prosthetic reconstruction and follow-up. A series of statistics will also be presented to document the efficacy of these implant procedures.
