There are many choices for every scenario of the edentulous patient, from single tooth replacement to full arch reconstructions. You must be familiar with the options that are available to the restorative dentist to deliver a restoration that looks, and functions like a natural tooth for the long term.
This course consists of three portions:
Lecture/didactic portion that will present all of the rationale, criteria, and clinical procedures necessary to perform temporization, abutment selection and selection of the type of definitive restoration.
Demonstration by the lecturer of various restorative procedures so the participants can see the actual procedures being performed on typodonts.
Hands on portion that will allow the participants to actually take impressions with different impression copings, make a custom impression coping, and see many different types of implant restorative parts. You will be able to return to your practice and get right to work performing all of the procedures with confidence.
By the conclusion of this course, the participant will be able to:
- Use the concept of “restorative driven tooth replacement”
- Know the choices of abutment selection for various clinical situations
- Cement retained vs Screw retained vs Combination type restoration (Screwmentable)
- Temporization options during healing
- Options for implant supported and implant retained dentures
- Impression making techniques, open tray, closed tray and custom impression copings
