Today Dr.Orr is in Atlanta learning about risks and benefitsof implants and the
predictability of the surgeries. When this course is complete it represent over 300
hours of continuing education this year. What we are currently discussing is the
growing body of evidence that implants should almost always be grafted. This is in
addition to the grafting of extraction sites where teeth have been removed to
preserve the bone. This more conservative approach, although more involved and
taking more time, is more predictable and provides a better long term result.
