Implant dentistry is now part of routine dental treatment. It is no longer enough for an implant to merely osseointegrate; it must be esthetic as well. The maxillary anterior dental implant is perhaps the most challenging for the clinician. A multiplicity of techniques must be mastered including but not limited to ideal implant placement, proper surgical technique, bone augmentation, soft tissue development and proper restoration.

Newton Cardoso presents at the Fairfield County Dental Club


10001355_10152345705379095_1675607923_nWe were excited to have Dr. Newton Cardoso come out all the way from Sao Paulo Brasil to present to our study club. Dr. Cardoso brought some interesting techniques as well as presenting specific cases allowing better insight into esthetics.

The presentation dealt with the everyday problems of esthetics and restorative challenges in today’s contemporary practice. A realistic and practical approach to restorative dentistry was discussed. And quite a few questions were discussed: What are the psychological and biological barriers to successful patient treatment? What do patients really want? What is the latest research? How to improve practice performance and patient satisfaction? What are the do’s and don’ts of full mouth rehabilitation cases? How to evaluate and select materials.

The meet was a great success, and we were thankful to have Dr. Cardoso.
