Considerations in Dental Implant Supported Hybrid Dentures
Implantology Course 5 Dates:
- December 1-2, 2017 (Fri-Sat) – Burbank Location
Implantology Course 5 Overview
This course will cover the indications and contraindications for immediate vs. delayed loading of a hybrid prostheses.
Comprehensive case planning from initial diagnosis to completion will be discussed. The course will review the prosthetic space requirements for hybrid prosthetics, CT scan analysis, and restorative design considerations of the definitive and interim prostheses.
Implant selection and implant componentry involved in each step of the procedure will be described. Impression making process for multi-unit cases will be reviewed to provide patients with a functional and esthetic prosthesis.
The hands-on portion of the course will cover the use and installation of multi-unit implant abutments onto an implant model, open tray transfer techniques and connection of a prefabricated denture to the multi- unit abutments with titanium cylinders.
Participants will observe placement of implants and the immediate loading of a provisional prosthesis in a live surgery demonstration using a Cone beam CT generated surgical guide.
This course is intended for both surgeons and restoring dentists interested to predictably incorporate hybrid prostheses into their reconstructive scope of practice.
- Predictably treatment plan and manage the prosthetic portion of screw-retained hybrid prostheses
- Participants will be able to understand the rationale behind immediate load vs. delayed healing for a hybrid prostheses
- Comprehend the process of treatment planning a hybrid case using the AB Denpax system
- Selection of AB multi-unit abutments and connection to AB dental implants
- Connection of a baseplate to abutments using titanium cylinders
- Impression techniques and laboratory steps in fabricating a verified final model
