Course Description:

"Current Treatment Perspectives in Implant-Retained, Tissue Supported Overdentures"

Restoring the edentulous patient with implants presents numerous challenges to the clinician. These challenges can vary from simple functional and esthetics problems to more complicated ones. An organized treatment plan is necessary to overcome these problems so that the final product will be predictable and satisfactory.

When a complete denture lacks the retention and the stability necessary for comfortable wear, an attachment implant overdenture is prescribed.

This presentation will discuss diagnosis; treatment planning and complications of implant overdentures and will review the evolutionary design of locator attachment systems. Many clinical situations will be presented with a step-by-step simplified approach to provide final prostheses that meet patients’ expectations from esthetic and functional perspectives.

Learning Objectives:

1. Review of the guidelines for diagnosis and treatment planning of implant-supported overdentures.

2. Provide an overview of a new generation for locator removable attachment system.

3. Identify the indications for removable partial vs. complete dentures.

4. Review the direct and indirect techniques for the pick-up of the denture attachment housing.

5. Provide an overview of impression materials, chairside preparation and polishing kit, and attachment processing material.

6. Maintenance and follow-up guidelines.
