Avoiding Augmentation by Using Short and Ultra-short Implants


Register for both webinars in the series here to save $50!

The use of augmentation in conjunction with traditional length implants has long been considered the standard. With the advent of short and ultra-short implants, the need for augmentation has been greatly reduced.

This 60-minute webinar will review recent long-term studies that confirm short and ultra-short implants show results comparable to standard-length implants placed in combination with augmentations. In addition, operative time is significantly less, and morbidity and costs are lower when short and ultra-short implants are used.

At the conclusion of this program, participants should be able to:

  • Identify those patients who would benefit from short or ultra-short implants.
  • Explain the risks, benefits and potential complications of augmentations and augmentation material.
  • Recognize when the use of short and ultra-short implants is a better option for the patient than augmentation.
  • Offer patients options for their proposed treatment.

Registrants will be granted access to view the recording and claim CE credit for up to 30 days after the conclusion of the webinar. You will receive notification as soon as the recording is available, typically within three business days of the live webinar.

Cancellation Policy: Registrants will receive a full refund up until the day before the event. No refund will be given for cancellation on the day of the event.

Each registration receives one CE certificate.
