eDentistry Academy’s Prosthodontics courses cover in-depth and evidence based lectures and clinically hands on components to aid a restorative dentist in the field of implantology. Spread over three modules, the courses covers single unit restorations, multi-unit restorations and full arch restorations.
Article Series – Clinical Case Report of Misused Implant Componentry
This is a three-part article series written by Dr. Alex Loh detailing a clinical case of misused implant componentry. The first two parts cover critical knowledge required for management of a complex inherited implant restorative case, specifically regarding the lack of clarity regarding screw-retained and cement-retained prostheses and the nuances of indexed and non-indexed abutments. The final part compiles this information to describe how these concepts were used to retrieve and manage a clinical case where implant componentry was incorrectly used.
Part 1 of this three-part article series discusses the poor and vague definitions of screw-retained and cement-retained prostheses, and uses clear diagrams to show all possible ways an implant can be restored and all the componentry involved. This is concluded with suggested and more clear definitions of what the literature refers to as screw-retained and cement-retained prostheses.

What Other People are Saying About The Course
“After attending many courses I realised that I could not see any non brand biased courses dedicated towards implant prosthetics. I was blown away at the depth of information, knowledge andhands on Alex shared. He kept his coaching group small, so there was one on one teaching. At no time any brands were mentioned or pushed to. No questions were dumb, silly or went unanswered. The dentists in the group were of different experience levels but Alex made sure that he kept in mind the newbies in the group and altered his teaching pace accordingly. I sincerely vouch for this course.”
Dr. Anup Shenai,
“The lectures were very comprehensive and with excellent referencing, covering restoration of implants as well as dealing with complications. The practical components were really well run and the feedback from Dr. Alex was great. The ongoing case support through the group forum has been wonderful. One of the great things about this course was that it didn’t sell a particular brand of implant but gave you the tools to implement what you learned using your pre-existing implant system.”
Dr. Jessica Gale,
“This course is very clinically relevant and has a lot of hand on exercises that help restoring implants. The lecture material is evidence based and Alex has a list of reference articles for what he teaches in the course. I also like the small group learning that make it more interactive. Highly recommend!
Dr. Anita Lam,
“I attended the course, loved the way Alex teaches everything—with evidence from the literature. You can always go back and read it again if you want. The notes we received were great. Thanks again Alex.
Dr. Mandeep Kaur,
“One of the most comprehensive courses I have ever attended! And the ongoing support after the course has been amazing! I love the cases shared on the forum! Would highly recommend it!”
Dr. Kim Dang,
“Really enjoyed this course! Alex has put up a very comprehensive course that can help you, all the way from a beginner to an advanced level. He is very knowledgeable and easy to approach. The hands on component was on point and also helped reinforce the lecture material. Highly recommended!”
Dr. Melanie Leung,
“Alex is very generous with his knowledge, has a genuine interest in and apt for teaching and has approached this topic with a lot of forethought. As a visual learner myself I really appreciated the effort taken to organise actual componentry for us to take apart and work with. Each module had a huge component of practical exercises (about 12) which I found both enjoyable and beneficial to augment the concepts being taught in the lectures.”
