View online | September 7, 2017 | Forward to a Friend

900-plus dental implants, 1 radiograph, and a case of the 'cat got your tongue'

Can you really identify more than 900 dental implants by looking at a single radiograph? I got my answer to this question when a patient came in and needed his lower fixed hybrid prosthesis removed. That bad boy had been on there for a long time and was, quite frankly, nasty! There was no record of who placed the implants or which dental implant system was in place. Problems? Definitely! But there is a solution!

BTW, can you identify the implant in this photo?

And there's lots more in this issue, so happy reading, peeps!
