Digital Complete Dentures is organized by Academy of General Dentistry (AGD) and will be held from Apr 19, 2018 - Apr 23, 2021. This Conference has been approved for a maximum of 1.5 Credit Hours.
Consequences associated with complete edentulism have been well documented and researched. Replacing natural dentition with conventional complete dentures represents a compromised tooth replacement therapy. The mandibular complete denture can be challenging for patients to adapt to due to a lack of retention, stability, and support. The maxillary complete denture also can impede phonetics, taste and be especially problematic for the sensitive gagging patients who cannot tolerate a full palatal acrylic coverage.
Using digital dentures can improve clinical accuracies while decreasing the number of chairside appointments. Once complete dentures are fabricated accurately with the application of retention, stability, and support, clinical challenges can be managed by applying dental implant-retained overdentures. The predictability and high success rates of implant overdenture modalities have been well documented in the scientific literature for the past 40 years. However, given the long history of dental implants as a viable treatment modality to edentulism, certain concepts in treatment planning can be confusing and conflicting.
This webinar was designed for the general practitioner to address and clarify the essential concepts in digital dentures and removable implant overdenture denture prosthetics in treatment planning for fully edentulous cases.
Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
