Dental Implants are one of the most exciting and rewarding aspects of dentistry, however they must be done well! Fortunately the surgical part of the process can be simple and predictable and done by nearly any dentist. The key to success in implant dentistry is not just the surgical component, but more importantly the prosthetic component which starts with proper diagnosis and occlusion.
The implant continuum addresses the foundations for success from proper restorative occlusion to the surgical management of the case and a process where it can all be done in the design phase leading to efficient and predictable implant success. It’s time to get in the game and offer another aspect of excellence to your patients!
DR. LEO J. MALIN
Dr. Malin received his D.D.S. degree from Marquette University in 1991. He maintains a private practice in Sparta Wisconsin. Dr. Malin’s dental practice is exclusively limited to the surgical and restorative phases of Implant Dentistry. He 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.
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.
