This two-day program is designed to support restoring clinicians, in conjunction with their surgical specialists, in their decision-making process when treating edentulous and partially edentulous patients with fixed and/or removeable implant prosthodontics. They will learn basic to intermediate implant restorative options and techniques through lecture and hands-on exercises in a state-of-the-art Simulated Patient Training Laboratory which allows for real-life case scenarios on one-of-a-kind proprietary simulation patients.
Day 1 will focus on diagnosis and treatment planning using basic prosthodontic principles. Information will be presented in lecture and group discussion formats. Laboratory procedures will be accomplished regarding implant/abutment impressions, master casts and fabrication of screw-retained provisional restorations.
Day 2 will focus on full arch, fixed and removable implant prostheses. The benefits and limitations of screw versus cement-retained implant restorations, screw mechanics, abutment selection criteria, and occlusion for definitive prostheses will be thoroughly discussed. The laboratory exercises will concentrate on removable, implant-supported overdentures including clinical and laboratory steps needed in fabricating stable, retentive removable overdentures.
At the completion of the program, participants should be able to:
