Description

This program is designed for the moderate to advanced implant dentist wishing to learn how to restore full arch failing dentitions in an economic and efficient manner.  The utilization of Angled abutments and CAD-CAM restorations allow the clinician to provide precision restorations and place implants in positions to avoid critical anatomic structures.  Techniques demonstrated include how to provide patients with immediate loaded, screw-retained, and provisional restorations at the time of tooth removal. The presentation will also review implant positioning, prosthesis types, maintenance issues, and complications.

Upon completion of this course, participants should be able to:
• Understand why tilted implants are used to reduce cost and treatment time for the patient.
• Describe the treatment guidelines for a screw-retained restoration to treat the fully edentulous patient
• Understand the technique for making an immediate load, screw-retained provisional, full-arch restoration
