Dental Implants and Esthetics


This continuing education course is intended for general dentists, dental hygienists and dental assistants. Dental implants offer patients a means to replace one tooth or multiple teeth in a way that meets functional and esthetic needs.  This course reviews various categories of esthetic complications, including: environmental morphology; surgical and soft tissue healing protocol; implant location; crown/prosthesis form and type of abutment; facial esthetics; and prosthesis discoloration.

When you complete a continuing education course on, a form will come up that requests your name, address, etc.  If you are a member of the AGD, make sure to fill out the field that asks for your AGD membership number (if you are not an AGD member, leave blank).  When you hit submit, a copy of the “proof of completion” is emailed directly to the AGD and P&G.  For your records, make sure to print a copy of the “proof of completion” certificate.
