Course Description

Edentulism is prevalent in many parts of the world and removable prostheses have traditionally been used for its management with several limitations. As implant and digital dentistry advancements occur, improvements towards implant retained removable prostheses have changed the way we help the edentulous population. Despite the higher initial costs, those prostheses lead to higher oral health-related quality of life while they are still more affordable compared to other implant supported treatment alternatives. This presentation will focus on the prosthetically driven surgical treatment planning and sequencing of overdentures. Clinical cases with appropriate and inadequate planning will be reviewed as a learning tool for future success.

Educational Objectives

  • Identify the current evidence-based implant overdenture designs.
  • Understand the need of restorative space analysis prior to surgical implant placement.
  • Understand the prosthetic limitations and poor prognosis of malpositioned implants
