As our population ages along with their teeth, the terminal dentition is becoming common. Transitioning into implant supported prosthetics requires proper treatment planning and supportive conversion and provisional techniques. The transitioning into the final prosthesis requires knowledge of the prosthetic materials available, their indications and space requirements. Dr. Loetscher will discuss the interplay of the surgical and prosthetic options.
- Understand treatment planning and sequencing the restoration of the failing dentition.
- Review the importance of provisionalization in establishing your final prosthetics.
- Review provisional options and their conversions for full arch prosthesis.
- Understand the steps involved for the restorative dentist through the conversion to an implant supported prosthesis from the terminal dentition.
- Understand the various types of full arch prosthesis, their materias, their esthetics, strength, and space requirements.
- Understand the economics and fee structures involved with converting the terminal dentition.
