Implant supported prosthesis are screwed or glued – why?

This webinar is designed to introduce the implant community to simpler methods of delivering and removing implant borne restorations. Using shape memory technology, the practitioner and the team can simply wave a wand, send energy to a device atop the abutment, and the prosthesis disengages and is removed. This innovation is intended for single crowns up to full arch. The programme will discuss the tech, the process, and its implications for full arch dentistry, with a detailed step-by-step method for live surgery in the full arch realm. Removing implant supported prosthesis is a necessary burden. But why must it involve drilling, un-torquing, torquing, filling, equilibrating? This webinar will offer an alternative that benefits the team and the patient.

Learning outcomes

  • Use of a ‘magic wand’ for simple removal of dental prostheses
  • Learn a new technique from an old technology, one that is applied in aerospace, medical, military, dental
  • Learn how hygiene appointments can be quick, without the need for traditional drilling, unscrewing, re-torquing, filling, equilibrating, etc
  • Discover the full arch implications with regard to recall and cleaning
  • Invite the team to this program to understand the extra-oral, simple steps to full arch conversion.
