Event description

Description

Course Description: The original design for prosthesis over dental implants was the implant supported complete denture (i.e. the hybrid prosthesis) in the mandibular arch. The design has evolved from requiring implant placement perpendicular to the occlusal plane to using four strategically placed angulated implants per arch (i.e., the “On-All-Four” concept). This lecture will discuss the clinical complications of implant supported complete denture in the following categories: (1) Diagnostic, (2) Prosthetic, (3) Biologic, and (4) Patient satisfaction. The lecture will present published data on clinical complications associated with these prostheses, as well as proposed solutions to minimize these complications.

Objective:

(1) Understand the prosthetics complications for these prostheses

(2) Understand the biological complication for these prostheses

(3) Understand how to best prevent these complications for these prostheses
