My specialist and most implant manufactures say: to place at crest or above: so why would you even consider placing at crest or below.

What is a “tapered” implant? You think you may know, but the Marketing can make it confusing. Is the Implant tapered or the connection tapered? They are 2 completely different things with different pros and cons. This is discussed because it is the critical factor on placing above crest, at crest or below crest.

Learning Objectives:

  • What are the benefits?
  • What are the drawbacks?
  • When can I?

Speaker: Dr. Leo Malin

dr-leo-malinDr. Malin received his D.D.S. degree from Marquette University in 1991. He maintains private practice in Onalaska, Wisconsin. Dr. Malin’s dental practice is exclusively limited to the surgical and restorative phases of Implant Dentistry. Dr Malin is also the Director of the Implantology and Bone Grafting Courses at the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies (LVI). Dr. Malin is the instructor of a variety of courses each year, ranging from implant basics to advanced surgical and restorative protocols. Doctors across North America and abroad attend these courses.

Early in his career, Dr. Malin discovered that the implant placement techniques typically used would not deliver a standard, predictable result. Because of this Dr. Malin, along with other experts in the fields of radiology and occlusion, has developed an occlusion based implant placement technique. This technique integrates the latest technologies to guarantee implant case control. This technique has also led to four United States patents and provided exceptional clinical implant surgical and restorative results. Dr. Malin additionally lectures at venues across North America on full mouth reconstructions and implant placements. He has received a variety of awards from his contributions in implant and neuromuscular dentistry.
