With proper oral care and experienced implant placement, full-arch dental implants can last patients the rest of their lives.
Southern Pines, NC (PRWEB) May 14, 2018
Dr. Steven Van Scoyoc, periodontist in Southern Pines, NC, recently hosted a two-part continuing education (CE) course on digital dental implant protocols for implant-supported full-arch cases. Dentists and their staff were invited to attend a lecture by Dr. Hunter Dawson, a prosthodontist with a focus on digital technology and dental implants and also experience a hands-on portion. The two-part series teaches dentists how to treat and promote full arch implant dentistry as well as identifying and evaluating candidates for treatment.
Patients affected by a full arch of missing teeth or those have hopeless dentition typically seek a permanent treatment option to restore their mouths. While dentures are a common option, full-arch dental implants add longevity, stability and oral health benefits to patient’s mouths. With proper oral care and experienced implant placement, full-arch dental implants can last patients the rest of their lives. Full-arch dental implant treatment is a complex process that requires advanced training and an understanding of the different treatment options and cases.
Part one of the course was held on April 12, 2018 where participants learned why practices may want to begin treating and marketing for full arch implant procedures, including how to identify proper candidates for treatment or those who can still be helped. Part two took place on May 4, and focused on temporary and final prosthetic design, creation and delivery to patients.
Dr. Van Scoyoc provides full-arch dental implants at his practice, Van Scoyoc Periodontics and Implants Center for Oral Health and has placed over 600 dental implants for patients. He offers both same-day dental implants and implant supported dentures to patients, as well as bone grafting treatment to prepare patients for the procedure.
