Dentures are fun to do and a dying art. They're also the roadmap to success to help edentulous and partially edentulous patients achieve a better life.This course will address all removable case scenarios. The discussions will start with achieving ideal dentures (Turbyfill deluxe dentures) and how these become an invaluable template for implant rehabilitations, as dentures represent an ideal canvas for full-mouth rehabilitation. Implant-supported partials, snap-on dentures, implant bar overdentures and mini-implant overdentures all will be discussed. Sometimes a patient’s budget or insurance limitations can deter the dentist from discussing optimal care, but with a dynamic treatment planning approach, patients can save bone, experience stability and support and, if desired, move on to fixed solutions in the future. The concept of "upgradeable dentistry" will be explained in this context. This comprehensive course will discuss treatment planning, surgery and dialogues for success as well as all prosthetic steps to achieve desired and predictable outcomes. This course is highly photographic and case-centered. It's a great overview for the entire team, but emphasis will be placed on the dentist, dental student and laboratory technician.
