The introduction of implant-supported prostheses has improved the quality of life of the edentulous population. The choice of the prostheses and the attachments should be based on various factors and not the preferences of the dentist or the patient. The success of an implant prosthesis relies on proper planning starting with the treatment prosthesis, progressing to CBCT assisted implant planning, and finally placement of implants with 3D surgical guides. Prosthetically driven implant planning ensures optimal placement of implants.
Please note: This is Part I of a two-part series. Full Arch Implant Prostheses: Part II - Fabrication Procedures will describe all the procedural steps for fabricating a predictable implant-supported removable dental prosthesis and an all-on-4/all-on-5 implant-supported fixed prosthesis. Each of the two courses can be taken independently and in any order.
Implants have helped improve the denture bearing foundation and quality of life of edentulous patients. Treatment options available for edentulous patients are complete dentures, implant-supported overdentures, and implant-supported fixed restorations. This course describes the factors governing the choice of implant prostheses and attachments/abutments for both removable and fixed implant restorations. It also details the entire treatment planning sequence starting with the treatment prosthesis, progressing to CBCT assisted implant planning, and finally placement of implants with 3D surgical guides.
