Clinical Protocols for Complete Arch Fixed Implant Supported Prostheses


Fixed implant-supported prostheses have gained tremendous popularity over the years. It is necessary to treat each patient uniquely and avoid using a generic or a similar design of fixed prosthesis for all patients. This presentation will focus on a systematic method of diagnosis and treatment planning that helps to categorize patients seeking fixed prostheses into 4 classes based on the amount of tissue loss, position of anterior teeth in relation to residual ridge, type of smile, need for lip support and need for gingival prosthesis. Additional practical considerations related to surgeries, choice of biomaterial, treatment cost, practice overheads, professional and at-home maintenance will be presented.

At the conclusion of this session, attendees should be able to:
• Differentiate various types of patients seeking implant-supported fixed prosthesis.
• Management of gummy smile patients for fixed prostheses.
• Recall the best biomaterials available for full arch fixed prostheses

Picture of the productDeveloping a Philosophy of Restorative Dentistry
Dentists today are confronted with many technological advances brought to us by manufacturers and colleagues whose claim is to be “cutting edge”.

This presentation hopes to highlight some of the goals of dental therapy with emphasis on trying to put into perspective what the main goals of dental therapy, especially from a prosthodontist’s point of view.

At the conclusion of this session, attendees should be able to:
• Forumulate a deeper appreciation for real teeth and develop criteria for when to keep and when to lose them.

Picture of the productThe Past, Present, and Future of Digital Dentures
Since the introduction of digital dentures, many aspects have improved. Such improvements include streamlined workflows, easy to use software, and new and improved manufacturing techniques. With the widespread use of intraoral scanners, capturing the edentulous soft tissue as well as digitizing traditional records, have changed the way we fabricate dentures. This presentation will demonstrate the clinical workflows and discuss the pros and cons of using these emerging techniques. Additionally, it is widely known that 3D printed complete dentures are becoming a viable option, but how do they compare to milled dentures? This lecture will compare the physical properties of milled and printed complete dentures to help determine their best applications.

At the conclusion of this session, attendees should be able to:
• Discuss the benefits of digital dentures.
• Utilize intraoral scanners to streamline digital denture workflows.
• Compare 3D printed and milled denture properties.

Picture of the productProsthodontic Review Course: Why Save Teeth?
We spent the majority of our formative years in dentistry learning the value of teeth and how to restore them. Today's philosophy seems to be shifting to a model that any tooth with a questionable prognosis should be removed and replaced with a dental implant. However, implants are not the ideal solution. Peri-implantitis has become an increasingly important area of concern for periodontists, restorative dentists and patients alike. New treatment algorithms continue to emerge proving that this is a challenging issue to treat. Therefore, why not extend the life of the dentition with predictable therapy?

At the conclusion of this session, attendees should be able to:
• Describe when a tooth has a hopeless prognosis.
• Identify what treatment options are available.
• Recall the rationale for the use of periodontal therapy.
