As a result of positive experiences with mini dental implants, Dr. Shatkin developed the patented F.I.R.S.T® Technique (Fabricated Implant Restoration and Surgical Technique). This technique features a mini dental implant(s) with a lab fabricated, finished single tooth replacement in one visit, usually accomplished in less than thirty minutes, and to create the same results in less than an hour for three to five units, and less than two hours for a full arch restoration.  With Dr. Shatkin’s technique and mini dental implants, patients enjoy not having to wait three to nine months for the healing and restoring of the implants.  This happens with minimal or no patient discomfort, restorations at very affordable patient fees and the opportunity for the dentist to significantly build the practice’s earning with minimal start up costs.


“Increased demands for the functional and esthetic replacement of missing teeth have pushed mini dental implants to the forefront of our profession.  Today, more than ever, the exciting treatment concept of mini dental implants has become an integral part of the general dental practice.”
