This course will clarify the specific steps that will have a huge impact on the success of removable reconstructions completed with the addition of dental implants. For the completely edentulous patient, participants will review the necessary steps in making complete dentures successful while learning that these are the same steps that make overdentures successful. We’ll discuss many overdenture attachment options that are on the market and create clear guidelines for selecting one overdenture attachment over another. Everyone will learn how many implants are necessary – and in what location for today’s treatment and tomorrow’s possibilities.

Adding implants under a compromised complete or partial denture may seem like a viable solution to provide improvement for our struggling patients. This course will clarify the specific steps that will have a huge impact on the success of these removable reconstructions.
Here, participants review state-of-the-art procedures for the highest quality removable prosthodontics – and discuss procedures from case design, implant location choices and attachment options to prosthesis delivery, impression making, and “claspless” partial designs. The course will include a thorough review of the science, fact and opinion of adding implants under an RPD.
For the completely edentulous patient, participants will review the necessary steps in making complete dentures successful while learning that these are the same steps that make overdentures successful. Each restorative dentist will be able to apply complete denture principles of impression making, recording centric and vertical dimension of occlusion as well as occlusal design to their denture and overdenture cases.
We’ll discuss many overdenture attachment options that are on the market. These will be broken down into simple categories to understand their similarities. We’ll create clear guidelines for selecting one overdenture attachment over another. Everyone will learn how many implants are necessary – and in what location for today’s treatment and tomorrow’s possibilities.
This course is based upon materials and techniques that will be implemented in clinical practice. Participants leave with more confidence and the ability to:
• Discuss the critical steps for success with complete dentures & overdentures
• Understand the differences in implant size and location for overdentures
• Learn to modify impression techniques for attachments and implants
• Complete a hands on exercise to apply a modified impression technique
• Classify different implants and attachments to better understand their use
• Complete hands on RPD framework design with implants and attachments
• Reinforce treatment planning ideals for future cases in your practice
This two-day course is geared toward general practitioners, surgical implant dentists, prosthodontists and laboratory technicians.
