Spear has released a new Study Club module on overcoming space limitation for implants in the anterior mandible. 

overcoming space limitations with dental implants

In "Overcoming Space Limitation for Implants in the Anterior Mandible," Dr. Ricardo Mitrani walks clinicians through the potential challenges of doing single tooth implants in the anterior mandible.

Viewers will work through a clinical case covering an implant-supported restoration utilizing a narrow diameter implant to replace a hopeless mandibular lateral incisor where the mesial-distal width is narrow. The case will highlight an immediate extraction/immediate provisionalization technique.

After going through this module, viewers will be able to:

  • Review potential solutions for single tooth replacement in the anterior
  • Learn which different implant options are available
  • Understand the advantages and limitations of using different implants
  • Review a possible sequence for completing a single tooth implant restoration when replacing a hopeless lower lateral incisor (from implant placement to delivery of the definitive restoration)
