Representing New Zealand

This presentation will discuss the management of labial and buccal bone deficits by the use of angled implants. Using an innovative design that allows change to the axial inclination of the implant connection and the prosthetic screw, these implants help the practitioner maintain a screw-retained approach even in situations with the most deficient bone.  This design also allows the placement of implants in native bone rather than grafted bone and offer a restorative advantage that can be effectively planned and executed.

Learning Objectives:  At the completion of this presentation, participants should be able to:

  1. Understand the advantages, indications and contraindications of the use of angled implants
  2.  Effectively plan surgical placement of this unique implant design
  3. Appreciate the improved restorative outcome that results from the use of angled implants
