Course Description:

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

When an edentulous patients’ complete or partial denture lacks the retention and the stability necessary for comfortable wear it negatively affects their quality of life. To improve their condition clinicians will typically prescribe an implant-retained, tissue supported overdenture to provide better function, and esthetics.

Treating the edentulous patient with a prosthesis retained with implants can present numerous challenges to the clinician. These challenges can vary from simple problems to more complicated ones significantly affecting function and patient satisfaction. A strategic treatment plan is necessary to overcome these problems to ensure the final result will be predictable and satisfactory for the patient, and the clinician alike.

This program provides didactic and hands-on training for the successful treatment of the edentulous patient utilizing contemporary implant-retained, tissue supported treatment options. Many clinical situations will be presented with a step-by-step simplified approach to provide a final prostheses that meet patients’ expectations from functional and esthetic perspectives.

Learning Objectives:

1. Review of the guidelines for diagnosis and treatment planning of full and partial implant-retained, tissue supported overdentures.
2. Provide an overview of the latest technologies in removable attachment systems.
3. Review the direct and indirect techniques for efficient and accurate pick-up of the denture attachment housing.
4. Provide an overview of innovative dental tools and materials used for overdenture modification and processing.
5. Review overdenture maintenance guidelines and proper hygiene protocols to ensure overdenture longevity and patient satisfaction.
