Dr. Bobby Birdi


Ocean Ceramics

Is implant dentistry something you want to make a routine part of your practice?

Do you feel more comfortable restoring to teeth than implants?

This lecture will aim to build your confidence making simple implant cases routine in your practice. Dr. Birdi will highlight tips, tricks and techniques specialists use to replace posterior teeth with dental implants. From treatment planning esthetics and stability prior to surgery, to selection of restorative materials, and the specific requirements to provide routine consistent treatment will be discussed in detail. James will discuss various material options available for simple posterior prosthetics. The business model regarding single-tooth posterior implant options will also be illustrated in this presentation.
