You are here:Home/Live Courses/Keys for Predictably Fabricating Complete Dentures
Rehabilitating the edentulous patient with complete dentures can be a daunting task for most.
There are two common reasons for this feeling:
The predictability of comfort, esthetics and/or function is not as easily achieved as it is with the fixed restorative cases.
Dental school education, unfortunately, has fallen short of teaching sound removable prosthodontic principles.
This denture course is designed to review basic removable prosthodontic principles and techniques so that the dentist will have a higher level of confidence when making his/her next set of complete dentures. Understanding where the teeth need to be esthetically, functionally and phonetically is paramount for success whether it be conventional complete dentures, immediate dentures or a setup try-in for an implant-supported prosthesis.
Through case examples and hands on exercises, students will learn a step by step process for fabricating predictable and comfortable complete dentures.
