continuing education feature Abstract This course highlights some of the top implant efficiency techniques used by top tier GP practices in the U.S. today. A focus on minimally invasive procedures allows the clinician to easily incorporate these productive procedures into an already busy bread-and-butter general practice. This course describes, in detail, the procedures that are most amenable to immediately incorporating into the GP practice, namely the five-minute implant, abutment and crown procedure, the no-drill implant procedure and the one-drill implant procedure. Educational Objectives This print or PDF course is a written self-instructional article with adjunct images and is designated for 1.5 hours of CE credit by Farran Media. Participants will receive verification shortly after Farran Media receives the completed post-test. See instructions on page 31.

Clinicians should be able to outline the steps necessary to successfully complete this procedure in an efficient manner. • Identify the suitable clinical situations for and learn to complete the five flapless/sutureless soft-tissue surgical implant access procedures (to include the high-speed handpiece approach and mini-envelope procedures). • Be able to identify clinical situations where an implant can be predictably placed into the site of a freshly extracted tooth with the use of only one drill to complete the procedure. • List several procedures that can be incorporated into your own practice immediately or within two weeks of attending a workshop highlighting these techniques. • Provide the order in which to proceed in cases involving general dentistry (crown and bridge work) and the five-minute implant, abutment and crown procedure. • Outline the use of the one-drill implant procedure as it relates to both overdenture cases as well as simple single-unit implant, abutment and crown restorations.
