Type: Lecture | Hands-on
Course Duration: Mod 1: TBA, 2019 Mod: 2 TBA, 2019
Credits: 32CE
Instructed by: Dr. Tony Daher & Dr. Paul Meserkhani


This comprehensive lecture/hands-on program will start by covering all necessary diagnostic procedures necessary to plan for the placement of implants and how to coordinate treatment with your surgical colleague. Getting implants in the correct position for prosthetic placement is critical for optimal results. Clinical restorative procedures will cover impressions and provisionals to final prosthetic design and placement. Every prosthesis including a single unit, multiple units to full arch and mouth restorations have unique challenges. Each will be covered in detail. Hands-on procedures will allow the participants to gain experience in critical areas. Upon completion of this program, participants should have the knowledge and experience necessary to plan and restore almost any fixed implant supported prosthesis.

Module 1: Full Arch and Full Mouth Procedures Fixed and Removable

Planning and restoring edentulous arches requires a very different approach than implant fixed prosthodontics. It requires an in depth knowledge of denture prosthodontics that is superimposed over implant placement and prosthesis design and selection. There are many restorative choices and individually they will dictated implant numbers and placement. CAD-CAM restorations are also replacing traditional techniques and a solid working knowledge of choices available and prosthesis design is critical in the contemporary world of implant prosthodontics.
