New Advancements And Alternatives For The Edentulous Patient

Treatment for the edentulous patient has evolved throughout the past several decades, yet there is still limited penetration of dental implants in full arch restorations. For example, research shows only 6% of denture wearers retain their prosthesis with dental implants. This limited penetration clearly demonstrates an enormous opportunity if we can align treatment options with patient needs and expectations. This presentation will review treatment modalities for the edentulous arch that may increase case acceptance, without sacrificing the quality of the restoration.
