Course Description

Periodontal Prosthesis was founded in the 1950’s by Dr. Morton Amsterdam as a discipline to save dentitions mutilated by disease. It was a time when there was no implant option so concepts, priniciples, and techniques were necessary to save teeth.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of the lecture, one should be able to identify concepts, principle, and techniques of Periodontal Prosthesis and relate that to Contemporary Dentistry.
