The Conometric Concept in Implant Prosthetic: A New Way to Make Fixed Restorations

This presentation will focus on the Conometric Concept for full mouth immediate reconstruction. The Conometric Concept focuses on creating fixed implant-supported restorations without screws or cement. It can be applied to single teeth, multiple teeth as well as full arch. It also facilitated creation of temporary as well as final restorations, immediate loaded or delayed, in combination with many types of restorative materials. The prosthesis has the versatility of being removed by the dentist but not the patient.
Learning Objectives:
• Learn how to select the appropriate treatment plan in the edentulous patient
• Understand the principles and the rationale of the conometric concept
• Learn how to parallelize and passivate Conometric abutments
