This hands-on course will focus on implant-supported removable prosthetic treatment, allowing participants to “pick-up” attachments under faculty supervision, as well as:
- strategic placement of one or two implants attached to a removable partial denture, to create a stable and claspless esthetic replacement for multiple missing teeth;
- the importance of RPD design;
- the surgical and prosthetic nuances of the controversial placement of four implants in the maxillary arch; and
- details of fabrication and laboratory support for the two-implant overdenture, the “standard of care” for the edentulous mandible.
Models and locator kits used in the course may be purchased separately to use as take-home study materials. Call NYCDS staff to inquire.
You will learn new treatments for implant supported and retained removable prosthetics, and how to incorporate these treatments into your clinical practice.
This course is sponsored by Straumann and Marotta Dental Studio.
