The use of dental implants has become the standard of care for partial and fully edentulous patients. In order to obtain predictable, consistent, stress-free results numerous clinical factors will be explored. This fast-moving clinical based presentation designed for private practice will provide a systematic approach to diagnosis and treatment of the fully and partially edentulous patient with removable prosthesis including overdentures and implant retained partial dentures. Scientifically based tips, tricks, techniques will be presented to assure long-term success with precision, productivity and profitability. Issues discussed will include ideal number of implants, attachment selection criteria and a foolproof formula for fee determination and patient presentation techniques all aimed at simplification and predictability of implant retained prosthesis.
Upon completion of this presentation, participants should be able to: 1) obtain stress-free, predicable results with removable implant prosthesis; 2) incorporate state-of-the-art techniques into private practice; 3) transition from removable to fixed prosthetics within their practice; and 4) recognize the patient benefits from ideal treatment.
