Contemporary & Classical Workflows for Implant Supported Full Arch All-on-X: Part 1

Credits: 1.5
Cost: Free
Time: 8:00 PM ET

“With the advances with predictability of CAD/CAM planning and success of immediate loading of full arch prosthetics, the quality of life for the patients with terminal-dentition  or edentulous patient is better served with an immediately loaded fixed, cross-arch stabilized prosthesis versus a 2-stage procedure with a delayed loading protocol.
