Poster of the AAID event

AAID (American Academy of Implant Dentistry) conference was a great experience, because I have improved the previous surgical techniques and learned new ones to do procedures that was limited before the conference. Now we are capable of doing the dental implant procedures more conservatively with cost reduction. This is because our patients deserve the latest techniques that are available.
