Description

Of the many ways to restore the edentulous patient, implant retained and supported overdentures allow us to provide our patients with, not only, a secure prosthesis, but one which can be more easily cleaned and restore the patients proper facial form and esthetics. Not all edentulous candidates are good candidates for a full arch fixed prosthesis and this course will help you in determining and diagnosing which patients are better suited for an implant retained overdenture.

Objectives:

  • The Importance of Correct Diagnoses and Treatment planning
  • Choosing Implant Retained or Implant Supported Overdentures
  • Prosthesis Design
  • Vertical Requirements for Removable Prostheses
  • Restorative Components/Milled Substructures/Attachments

At the end of this course you should be able to:

  • Evaluate patients presenting for treatment
  • Understand the design of both types of overdenture prostheses (Lone standing and Milled Bar)
  • Understand and be familiar with the components used
  • Understand digital scanning and milled bar digital design
