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.

One of the most important and obvious differences between implants and teeth is the lack of the Periodontal Ligament (PDL). The PDL contains mechanoreceptors that help determine the amount of force being applied to a tooth. This helps act as a safety mechanism for the tooth, so that it is not overloaded with stress.
I want to spend a few minutes today discussing the benefits of utilizing a Lucia Jig to make a differential diagnosis. All right. Here's what I mean by that. Many times, you're going to have patients that come in the door, and they're going to be complaining about TMJ pain.
