Considerations in Dental Implant Supported Hybrid Dentures
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.
