Do you know which company developed the first 3.0 two-piece implant? How about the world’s smallest two-piece zirconium implant? You might be surprised to hear that both of these are the same company and that it’s not one of the names you might think of. On this week’s show, we have the owner of this company, Argon Medical products, Ric Donaca. Ric will talk to us about innovative ideas in implant dentistry. How did he create and now sustain a unique market in today’s product-driven competitive implant marketplace? Also, what features does he believe make an implant successful? Join us!
It’s been a long road through this endo series but we are finally at the end- obturation! With so many techniques out there to seal root canals, which one is the best- or is there a “best”? We present details on what works and what the research says about the differences in obturation methods and sealers. We then discuss protocols for core build-ups, who should do them, and when they should be done. Finally, the controversy about posts is very real even to this day and we will weigh in on what we feel about the place of posts in dentistry.
