I just returned from attending the 35th annual USC International Periodontal and Implant Seminar in Los Angeles California. Janet King and Dee Webb attended with me. The world leaders in implant dentistry were there. We listened to speakers from Italy, Spain, France, Germany, Sweden, Japan, Korea, And the USA. It is exciting to be part of this discipline in dentistry, and learn about the changes that are happening around the world.
The theme of the conference was “The Age of Speed”. It focused on decreasing the amount of time that it takes to do implant dentistry. Some of the advances are exciting.
Most people won’t believe this, but it is possible to extract a failing tooth, and replace it immediately with a new tooth the same day. New grafting procedures make it possible to place implants in positions that make the new teeth look and feel just like the originals.
We are able to predictably do things that I never thought were possible 30 years ago. To be able to restore people smiles, health, and self esteem is exciting. To not only help patients be more comfortable and chew better, but to have teeth look and feel like new is exciting.
Our goal is to stay on the cutting edge in the field of implant dentistry. If you have missing or failing teeth we would love to discuss options to help you. You can easily schedule an appointment online or give us a call.
