Fixed implant-supported prostheses are considered to be the highest state-of-the-art solution we can offer to our edentulous patients and patients who have a failing dentition. However, failures of these prostheses are commonly seen, but not clearly understood. Violation of tooth position with respect to esthetics, phonetics, and function is most often the cause.
This 4-hour course is designed to review the five key complete denture determinants that will ensure predictability and success of these expensive and time-consuming cases, leading to overall joy and satisfaction by both the patient and clinician.
- Summarize the five key determinants of fabricating complete dentures
- Understand how to determine the correct position of the upper and lower anterior teeth
- Clarify the role of phonetics in determining proper tooth position and vertical dimension of occlusion
- Learn the more effective and easiest way to take a centric relation bite record on the edentulous patient
- Implement these removable prosthodontics principles in your practice to begin solving more complex problems and cases
