Oakland, OR, March 19, 2007 - The Science & Art of Implant Treatment Planning, a continuing education course, was recently co-hosted in Creswell, Oregon by Crown Works Dental Laboratory, an Oregon based dental lab and NobelBiocare. Forty three participants were able to gain seven continuing education credits.  Attendees came from as far north as Salem, Oregon and as far south as Medford, Oregon. 

SK El-Ebrashi BDS, MS presented a large quantity of scientific evidence on the success and failure issues that must be considered in implant treatment and planning.  He also encouraged each participant to consider treatment options in regards to esthetics and function.  The range of photos used by Dr. El Ebrashi in the presentation reached back into his career, as well as the career of his father, as  Prosthodontists.  Dr El-Ebrashi is a former Professor of Fixed, Removable & Implant Prosthodontics at Oregon Health & Science University. He was pre-clinical and clinical director of removable prosthodontics from 2003 to 2006. He obtained his degree in Dental Surgery from the University of Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, England, and completed his specialty training in Prosthodontics and Masters of Science from the University of Michigan. Dr. El-Ebrashi has an interest in advanced prosthetics, with a special emphasis in aesthetics and ceramics. He currently has a private practice limited to implants and prosthodontics. Dr El-Ebrashi is a guest lecturer at Oregon Health and Science University and is also a Diplomate with the American Board of Oral Implant Dentistry.

Crown Works Dental Laboratory, a Certified Dental Laboratory, is committed to providing quality continuing education opportunities close to home for its local dental clientele.  Crown Works Dental Laboratory owner, Rodney Grizzard notes, along with Dr El-Ebrashi that patients are often requesting information from their dentists about implants.  NobelBiocare’s products are high quality, provide a wide assortment of options and are backed by a reputable company. 

The NobelBiocare, Procera, Forte scanner is allowing dental laboratories, such as Crown Works, to provide titanium, and all-ceramic implant abutments created especially for the individual case.  This eliminates grinding on the abutment and causing stress induced weakness.
