Cement Vs. Screw Retained Restorations (3 CDE CREDITS)

User Ratings -

Course Description

Over the past few years one of the most debated topics in implant dentistry has been screw retained vs. cement-retained restorations. Of these two restorative options, the cement retained choice has been the most scrutinized. Dr. Scott McLean will discuss this issue and will also provide you with a solution that will give you the opportunity to provide more screw retained implant restorations where, in the past, you would have been limited to a cement retained solution.

 Dr. Scott McLean will also Nobel Biocare’s new integrated treatment workflow for the partially edentulous patient that will enable all members of the treatment team to communicate more efficiently and effectively with the patient and also provide an accurate and predictable outcome for the patient. 

Course Objectives:


1.       Recognize the possible implications of using excess cement.

2.       Be able to gain better access to posterior implant restorations by angling the screw access channel to the mesial.

3.       Understand the design of the screw access hole to come through the central fossa of the anterior implant restoration.


4.       Understand the new NobelProcera ASC (angulated screw channel) abutment and its application in the posterior.
