Course Description

Implant dentistry has revolutionized replacement of missing dentition. From single teeth and bridges to prosthetics replacing entire arches, many treatment options are available. Clinical success relies on both planning and execution. As a prosthodontist, Dr. Keith Phillips, has extensive knowledge of available implant systems, techniques, technologies and materials to address the gamut of clinical needs.

Many options exist to restore edentulous arches. Fixed removable hybrid prosthetic therapy has become a viable option for the edentulous or terminal dentition patient. Many implant companies have embraced this exciting treatment option including All-on-4® (Nobel Biocare), SmartFix™ (Dentsply) and others. However, hybrids can pose challenges even for the dentist that is skilled in removable prosthetics and implants. This lecture will focus on introducing the dentist to the hybrid procedure from treatment planning through surgery and the final prosthetics. Emphasis will be placed on avoiding common hybrid treatment errors.

Course Objectives

As a result of attending this course, you will be able to:

  • Examine and treatment plan for dental implants.
  • Review dental implant options for edentulous patients.
  • Discuss current systems, techniques and technologies.
  • Describe fixed removable hybrid prosthetics from planning to final delivery.
