Educational Objectives

After completing this course, participants will be able to:
  • Describe the difference between lead in bevel, conical and flat on flat connections.
  • Identify the effects of connection length and screw loosening.
  • Explain which connections best prevent micro movement and micro leakage.
  • Compare the effects of concave and convex abutment profiles and platform switching.


In this course, Dr. de Oliveira will discuss everything you need to know about implant connections. What are conical connections and why use them? What could happen if I use a "flat on flat" connection? I've used a lead in bevel implant for years, why switch? Dr. de Oliveira will answer all these questions and more.
