Dr. Kennedy asks:
I have a working class patient population and I plan to start doing
restorations next year. I am not planning on making dental implants the focus of my practice. I just want to offer this as an additional service to my patients.
If I am only going to do a small number of dental implants, how do I decide which dental implant system to use? I will mostly be doing single
tooth replacement, small bridges and some mandibular overdentures. Clearly, the cost of the implants and the components will be a factor. Aside from potential number and types of cases, what clinical and laboratory factors should I be most concerned with when choosing an implant system? Thanks.
