This course is designed to provide the participant with detailed knowledge of all aspects of complete dentures for the fully edentulous patient to include conventional dentures, overdentures, and implant supported restorations. The technical experience and materials needed for the fabrication of various types of removable prostheses, will be discussed by Dr. Bolouri and Dr. Sarah Allen, board certified prosthodontist and College of Dentistry Faculty.
The presentation will include treatment planning, discussion of complex cases, complete denture design and the treatment options for implant support for the overdenture and fixed hybrid restorations. Digital denture fabrication will also be included to demonstrate how modern technology has improved the delivery of care to clinical techniques which have spanned the history of dentistry. Paring new age technology with one of dentistry's long time clinical treatment, that is complete dentures, demonstrates how modern technology impacts time tested clinical procedures.
The clinical steps necessary for the successful application of treatment methods for the fully edentulous patient will also be shown.
New treatment modalities involving implant-supported complete dentures will be presented, as viable options for fully edentulous patients who cannot accommodate implant-only restorations. These types of restorations are both versatile and adaptable and offer the patient improved quality of life. A thorough discussion of this implant supported option will occur.
