May 12, 2017 Current Treatment Perspectives in Implant-Retained, Tissue Supported Overdentures for the Contemporary Dentist

Restoring the edentulous patient with implants presents numerous challenges to the clinician. These challenges can vary from simple functional and esthetics problems to more complicated ones. An organized treatment plan is necessary to overcome these problems so that the final product will be predictable and satisfactory. When a complete denture lacks the retention and the stability necessary for comfortable wear, an attachment implant overdenture is prescribed. This course will discuss diagnosis; treatment planning and complications of implant overdentures. Many clinical situations will be presented with a step-by-step simplified approach to provide final prostheses that meet patients’ expectations from esthetic and functional perspectives.

September 29-30, 2017 Implant Surgery - Level 1

Integrating implant surgery into your practice is not difficult or threatening, and it will certainly be a positive and profitable change in your professional life. You undoubtedly already have implant prosthodontics in your practice, and this course will update and enhance your prosthodontic skills. Primarily, the course emphasizes surgically placing small-diameter implants (1.8 to 2.9 mm in diameter) in edentulous and partially edentulous patients and placing conventional-diameter implants (3mm and larger in diameter) in healthy patients who do not require bone grafting.
