hi everybody my name is dr. August elo Zahra I am a general dentist I practice in the Los Angeles area and I’m excited today to talk to you about the pros and cons of different implant connections as

a general dentist who’s placing implants

prior to placing implants I wouldn’t

really choose what implant I use do is

whatever this specialist sent me and I’m

sure there’s a lot of them GPS out there

that are either placing their own

implants or wanting to listening to this

webinar and so it’s a nice way to kind

of talk about all the different

connections the pros and the cons of

mainly two of them the internal hex

implant and the conical connection and

kind of help you out and figure out

which one of you want to start out with

so go ahead and get started I’m going to

talk for a while I’m going to save all

the questions for the end I have a it’s

kind of funny if you’ve never seen any

of my live surgeries that I’ve done for

implant direct something always goes

wrong so earlier today my computer

crashed and it totally killed my you

know presentation that I had for this

luckily I had made a PDF of it and so

I’m lecturing off of the PDF and it’s

hard for you to see the little screen

and the question bar of the GoToMeeting

that we’re using so I’m the wait till

the end to answer all the questions but

save them up type them and we’ll get

through as many as we can so

as I said before I’m a general dentist I

learned how to place implants during my

GP our residency ages ago

so about 20 years ago I did at CPR and

as many of us who have gone dental

school a while back

implants are really not part of our

general education going to dental school

there was an elective on restorative at

the University of Washington where I

went but there is definitely nothing

surgical so it’s really excited that my

GP are offered surgical training in

implants however her you know as most

new grads getting out of residency were

getting a school you know I just wanted

to get out and start you know working

and paying off my student loans and

starting a practice and so I did

introduce implants really until about

ten years ago in my practice you know I

relied on different specialists who did

excellent excellent work and I ended up

restoring them and even in restoring

them I went through an evolution of you

know just using stock abutments that

this the specialist torqued down for me

with a little snappy cap and eventually

getting into doing abutment level and

fixture level impression as we said

before I wrote a couple of books so my

first book implants made easy was just

sort of a cookbook approach for GPS to
