How do you restore your patients who have lost or are losing all of their teeth? The options are a complete denture, an implant retained overdenture, an implant supported overdenture, or a fixed bridge, so which should you choose? Traditional dentures and bridges are well understood, but implant overdentures can be confusing. I’ll clarify the difference between implant retained and implant supported overdentures and when each one is right for a particular arch. Attendees will also learn:

  • How attachment selection impacts overdenture fabrication
  • Which attachments and attachment systems to choose
  • 3 excellent techniques for attachment pick up
  • Different impression protocols and when each is indicated
  • How to get the occlusion right
  • Easy delivery solutions
