Dental implants are the standard of care for tooth loss today offering important advantages over other dental restoration options in terms of oral health and function, longevity, comfort and aesthetics. Fortunately advances over the past decade or two in materials, technology and surgical techniques have made these advantages made available to the vast majority of people who have suffered tooth loss. Unfortunately as use of dental implants has became more widespread, so too has misinformation.In the interests of debunking bad information that may discourage dental surgeons from delivering top of the line dental care, this workshop aims to expose the myth and reality of dental implants.
