It was a two hour informative lecture with various case presentations which ended with an interactive doubt solving session. The highlight of the lecture was how pterygoid implants can be used in resorbed posterior maxillary arch without undergoing bone grafts and sinus lift procedures. The lecture definitely intrigued all the minds on the advantages and ease of placing pterygoid implants and also motivated the crowd to begin the use of these implants. It was an enlightening lecture which got positive feedback from all  the delegates.
