Course Description

One of the most significant advancements in the implant industry in the past decade is the growing preference of the conical connection. For practitioners who started with external and internal hex implants, the benefits of conical connections might not be immediately obvious. This webinar is intended to help implant placing dentists understand its differences, as well as the clinical benefits of the available connections. While most dentists may still feel comfortable placing an internal hex implant, it is vital to understand and consider the benefits of a conical connection for your patients and practice.
In this ID InSession webinar, industry expert Dr. de Oliveira discusses his experience with various implant designs for ease of use, restorability and long-term success.
