44th Annual DREA Symposium
DEC 2016

Implant Prosthodontics

Presented by

Scott R. Dyer, DMD, MS, PhD

The endosseous dental implant is widely used in current restorative dental practice.  Tooth replacement has become a reasonable option for many patients and a more frequently selected procedure. There are common and simple procedure to fabricate and complete every case.  However, each case will have specific variables that can be manipulated in order to optimize the implant restoration.  This day and a half course is designed to review treatment options and techniques for replacing missing teeth with implant restorations with optimum results.  Specific focus will be given to individual and multi-unit crown and bridge cases, implant over-partials, and implant over-dentures.

 Topics will include:   

  • Treatment planning and techniques for replacing missing teeth
  • Optimizing esthetic and functional results
  • Surgical communication
  • Prosthetic case design
  • Procedures for fixed implant cases
  • Selecting and fabricating different over-denture options
  • Conventional fixed-detachable hybrid dentures
  • Dental laboratory communication
  • Implant Complications
