Luncheons for Learning
Ideal Implant Location and Distribution Based on Esthetic, Function and Biomechanical Considerations

Alfonso Monarres, D.D.S.

One day a month a speaker discusses a dental topic during lunch. The sessions are informal and the group has an opportunity to interact with the speaker during the short discussion period at the end of the lecture. It requires only about one and one-half hour of your time to learn the latest developments in many areas of dentistry. It also offers the opportunity to become better acquainted with your colleagues and their staff since all dental allied personnel and technicians are also invited to attend.

This course will provide a summary of useful principles to help clinicians understand the ideal implant location for the
following case scenarios:
• Single implant in the esthetic zone
• Multiple implants in the esthetic zone
• Single and multiple implants in the non-esthetic zone
• Multiple implants for the full arch fixed prosthesis
• Multiple implants for the full arch removable prosthesis
