CE1: Implant Abutment and Restoration Design and Risk Factors for Peri-Implant Disease Douglas H. Mahn, DDS
This CE article discusses how design elements such as abutment topography, material, and height can affect the risk for development of peri-implant disease, as well as the important roles of the implant-abutment connection and emergence profile in minimizing risk. Because of the increase in popularity of dental implants, clinicians must be vigilant in their awareness of peri-implant disease in patients with implants.

CE2: Minimally Invasive Extraction Site Management With Dehydrated Amnion/Chorion Membrane Daniel Cullum, DDS; and Mark Lucas, DDS, MS
This second CE article features the use of dHACM, which helps enhance wound healing and regulate inflammation and pain in support of immediate implant treatment. The article demonstrates the use of minimally invasive immediate implant treatment using dynamic bone navigation, bone grafting, and dHACM, which is an important adjunct for grafting that can facilitate wound healing and reduce pain.
