Founded in 1984, the world-renowned Misch Institute helps set and elevate the level of implant dentistry using a hands-on training approach. Dentists attend classes on diagnosis, implant case planning and patient evaluation, and all phases of dental implant treatment. Each course includes lectures and hands-on laboratory sessions for both removable and fixed prosthodontics.
Dr. Klym started his implant hands on coursework many years ago, receiving a fellowship from the ICOI in 1998 (International Congress of Oral Implantologist). His patients are receiving an ever higher level of care and his continued implant training will help insure long-term, healthy results for his patients.
Actual Patient Results Achieved With Dr. Klym's Implant Dentistry Training:First, Dr. Klym’s patient M. H. had congenitally missing teeth - central and lateral incisor - left side and front of smile. The teeth were moved with orthodontics to make room for placing dental implants, which were restored with 360 degree porcelain veneers. The patient came in with a partial denture, which she had worn most of her adult life.
Another patient, Tom, discussed his implant care: “About a year and a half ago my tooth broke. While it affected my chewing and eating, what had the most effect was how embarrassed I was about missing a tooth. Essentially, I quit smiling. Since I was going to need an implant, I was also glad Dr. Klym had training in oral sedation dentistry.”
