Northern Illinois AGD Presents: Full Arch Implant Therapy

October 14, 2016

Full Arch Implant Therapy

Dr. Joseph Kim

Over the past several decades, implant dentistry has become a welcome modality as an alternative to conventional prosthodontics, especially in situations where traditional methods cannot provide adequate restorative solutions. This is particularly true for edentulous patients in need of implant assisted full arch or full mouth rehabilitation, as well as, partially edentulous patients whose remaining dentition are not in mechanically optimal positions. Despite its promise, restorative dentists avoid certain full arch implant solutions.is often due to inadequate patient communication and lack of experience. Conversely, there is a disturbing trend to push patients to remove otherwise healthy teeth and their supporting structures in favor of one size fits all hybrid prostheses. This course will explore the benefits and limitations of fixed and removable treatment options in the context of full arch reconstruction. Special attention will be paid to common problems and how to avoid and address them. This course is appropriate for surgical and restorative clinicians who want to better understand and implement full arch fixed and removable implant therapy in their practices.
