General dentist with proper education, mentoring and hands-on training can successfully place and restore implants. 80% to 90% of all implant related cases fall into the simple category (single implants with sufficient bone width and height, 10mm above the IAC and 10mm of bone below the floor of the maxillary sinus). My involvement in implant education has allowed me to teach several hundred general dentist on this concept.
