Program Track: Implants
Moderator: Jeffrey Ganeles
Speakers: Oded Bahat, Fereidoun Daftary
Failing dentition always presents the profession with the great challenge of predicting the process and a prolonged period of treatment; establishing optimal esthetic and function often is compromised. The introduction of endosseous implants provides clinicians with a more predictable solution to this complex planning and treatment dilemma. The critical question is whether and when a tooth with a compromised prognosis should be retained, versus being replaced by an implant - it remains unanswered. This session will present a thought-provoking algorithm for decision-making and management of risks and complications during treatment.
