Overview

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.
