Implant Mini-Residency #2

Date: March 18, 2016
Educational Leader: Dr. Steven LoCascio

AM: Diagnosis and Treatment Planning the Edentulous Patient

  1. Classification of the Edentulous Patient
  2. Predictable Treatment Options
    1. Overdentures
      1. Implant Retained
      2. Implant Supported
    2. Fixed Solutions (C & B vs. Hybrid Dentures)
    3. Immediate Occlusal Loading
  3. Attachment Mechanisms
  4. Case Designs and Mechanical Strategies
  5. CAD/CAM Bars

PM: Case Presentations

Objectives: At the conclusion of this session, each participant should be able to a) use an algorithm that will help in the diagnosis and treatment planning of the edentulous patient, b) describe the critical differences between implant assisted and supported designs, c) design overdentures in a way to maintain retentive values of attachment mechanisms, d) predictably manage the edentulous patient with simple design mechanics, e) describe the vertical space requirements needed for different prostheses.
