⭐ Two-Implant Mandibular Overdenture: Restoring Quality of Life, as Well as Teeth

June 7

Approximately 10% of Americans over the age of 18 are completely edentulous. A conventional maxillary denture suits the needs of most patients. However, mandibular dentures have problems with retention, stability, function and esthetics. This creates a less than ideal quality of life for these patients. A two-implant supported overdenture overcomes many of these problems and can be relatively cost effective, especially if their existing denture can be retrofitted at chairside obviating the expensive laboratory costs. The morning lecture is followed by an afternoon hands-on laboratory session consisting of restorations in mannequins.

Topics to be covered:

  • Diagnosis and treatment planning.
  • Implant placement.
  • Impression techniques.
  • Restorative options (bar, ball attachments, locators & magnets.)
  • Retrofitting an existing denture.
  • Overdenture economics.
  • Complications.

Objectives:

  • Improve quality of life of your patients.
  • Increase your patient pool.
  • Offer additional service in your practice.
