Singles, bridges to full-arch—when, where, and why!
Analog plus digital and telescopic

This program is aimed at helping clinicians by discussing treatment planning and decision-making processes, from replacing the single anterior missing tooth to the fully edentulous arch and beyond. We will discuss how digital dentistry has impacted these processes and how you can leverage it to benefit your patients and your bottom line.


  1. What are some of the determinants for keeping bone around implants?
  2. When implants are not the chosen solution, what are some alternatives?
  3. Do all patients need “anchored teeth,” or will some fare better with removable and telescopic alternatives?
  4. When should cantilevers be used on implants? Are they the same as teeth?
  5. How to balance patient preferences with clinical factors and financial realities? Is digital dentistry the answer?


  1. Define the benefits and advantages of dental implants in multiple phases of dentistry
  2. Identify non-conventional treatment planning options with and without dental implants
  3. Illustrate clinical and laboratory techniques for fixed and removable restorations with and without dental implants
  4. Practice how to better communicate with your partner dental laboratory
