Dr. Beatrice Leung, a Toronto-based prosthodontist and Assistant Professor at the Faculty of Dentistry at U of T, believes there is a need for more guidance for dentists and dental students who may be struggling with this issue.
In this informative presentation, Dr. Leung unpacks the complex practice of screw-retained implant crowns, addressing issues such as understanding screw mechanics, implant/abutment interfaces and the management of the various intraoral forces at play.
