New Learning Pathway
Choosing a dental laboratory can be fraught with difficulty and confusion. It is easy to be overwhelmed by the large number of options available. To evaluate and choose among these options, the clinician needs a clear strategy based on relevant criteria. Working with a Dental Laboratory includes a Learning Module and a clinical example of effective communication between clinician and lab to achieve the desired outcome.

Whether replacing a single tooth or a complete arch, implant treatment is centered on one main goal: to achieve optimal physiologic, functional, and esthetic outcomes.
Oral Physiology describes the functional components of the oral cavity in a clear, straightforward style. This information is a prerequisite for successful reproduction of oral structures through implant therapy.
Its easy-to-understand format and accompanying Assessment makes it appropriate for beginning learners, as well as for practicing clinicians looking for a refresher on oral physiology as it relates to implant therapy.
