“Implant Overdentures: Incorporating Them Into Your Practice”


Implant has made dentistry grow in many directions. They have helped us to provide a higher standard of care to patients. Patients have had the ability to choose the option of fixed teeth rather than removable. Unfortunately there are still boundaries to this treatment: the “fixed” implant option is not affordable to everyone. Anatomy may preclude implant positioning and some patients may object to multiple surgeries.

An over denture option is a “go between” options for those patients who are straddling the world of removable and fixed. This can be an excellent option for difficult arches to treat, and those with on a moderate budget.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Patient scenarios to incorporate “implant overdentures” – treatment planning.
  2. Clinical requirements for procedure.
  3. Design concepts for overdentures.
  4. Review of patient cases.
