"This is a great course because removable prosthetics are usually the weakest area of dentistry. Learning this technique gives us another option for patients."

- Dr. Jency Paul, River Edge, NJ

Course Description:

A thorough and comprehensive examination of biomechanics in removable restorative design. The Equipoise System and philosophy insures the dentists and patients, a predictable, successful prosthesis by directing forces along the long axis of the tooth designed to strengthen the periodontal structures while protecting and preserving the abutment teeth. You will observe how versatile the equipoise system is with existing dentition, conventional and precision designs and as an excellent tooth borne solution with implant supported Equipoise C&L attachments.

Educational Objectives
