Can You Really Get Teeth in a Day with Dental Implants?

Dr. Petrungaro enchanted and enlightened dental implant specialists from all across North America with new techniques unheard of 10 years ago.

Oak Brook, IL, April 23, 2009 --( The echoes of Gloria Estefan and the Miami Sound Machine could almost be heard during the morning hours before Dr. Petrungaro came to address over 70 dental implant specialists inside Implant Seminar’s conference venue. This location happened to have been the official recording studio where Gloria Estefan and the Miami Sound Machine recorded their first 8 award-winning albums and was also the studio of choice for legends such as Jimmy Buffet and REO Speedwagon. Although the mouth is wet, dental seminars can be dry, but not when Dr. Petrungaro takes the helm. The dentists in this crowd were unable to take their eyes off Petrungaro’s powerpoint slides and videos; and they couldn’t stop taking notes during his high-energy, robust, and crystal-clear delivery.

The seminar on immediate-loading dental implants was held in Miami, Florida from April 17-18, 2009. Dr. Paul brought his best cases forward, ranging from single tooth anterior cases to high-end full mouth esthetic dental implant cases . There is a large amount of debate within the dental community about the success rates of immediate-loading, or as some may refer to as “Teeth in a day”. Most of that controversy is based on techniques used years ago that had moderate to low success rates. Now with modern techniques, bone grafting, PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma derived from the patient’s own blood), CT scanning, and with today’s dental implants it is truly a reality. Dr. Petrungaro presented case after case after case describing not only his techniques, but the map that he uses to diagnose, treatment plan, and implement these techniques.

The course was one of six seminars during the Masters Series of Implant Seminars. Dr. Arun Garg, president of Implant Seminars, and considered one of the world’s preeminent authorities in dental implantology and bone grafting said he felt “Extremely proud” to be able to once again offer his students and colleagues the best professional faculty and practitioners. “Just by looking at how incredibly energized he leaves his students, it’s obvious it’s not just his virtuosic knowledge as a dentist, but also how extraordinarily engaging and entertaining he is… There is no doubt we will keep joining forces to educate dentists” declared Dr. Garg.

There were 70 dental implant specialists present at Dr. Petrungaro’s course in Miami. One of those, Dr. Umar Haque, was in the front row absorbing as much as he could. “I have never seen so much passion and excitement from someone. Dr. Petrungaro was extremely informative about the surgical techniques and never backed down from a tough question. He showed us some impressive dentistry, amazing lab work with Edgar Jimenez, and a new device called TempStent that will revolutionize the way teeth with dental implants can really be done in a day.” Dr. Haque left the seminar excited to get back to work at his private practice called Oak Brook Smiles, located in Oakbrook Terrace, Illinois. Dr. Umar Haque has been placing dental implants for 7 years, and he is looking forward to reading the dental literature that Dr. Petrungaro backed his work up with during the seminar.
