Advancements in technologies are moving at a rapid pace and many clinicians are questioning the role that emerging technologies are playing in their practices. The goal of this program is to give clinicians the latest information and the tools necessary to succeed in integrating innovative technologies into their practices. You will learn the latest about state-of-the-art patient-specific overdenture solutions and how they are gaining popularity. The concept uses rigid telescopic principles to give your patients a pure implant-borne, palate free, removable result that is easy to clean. Integrating precision technology with today’s patient’s needs provides them the functionality and esthetics they demand and makes removable dentistry enjoyable again!
At the completion of this course, participants will be able to understand:

- Proper implant diagnostics: a collaborative approach

- The different attachment system options 

- Step-by-step instructions for the clinical team

- Overdenture fabrication and esthetics

Evolution and Advancements: From implant design to the latest in overdenture therapy

Innovation and technology are moving at a rapid pace with many developments impacting the role of implant therapy within the dental practice.

Today, the success of implant treatment is defined by both function and esthetics, whereby the design of the implant system plays a critical role for achieving predictable restoration of teeth, even for patients with poor bone quality. This program will discuss the role of implant design, biomechanics, and abutment options for achieving optimal results. The benefits of a design philosophy based on the natural dentition utilizing a site-specific, crown-down approach and further supported by an intuitive surgical protocol and a simple prosthetic workflow will be reviewed. 

The successful integration of new technologies within the practice will also be presented and include the latest in patient-specific overdenture solutions.  In particular, restorative treatment concepts based on telescopic principles are gaining in popularity due to their stability and ease of hygiene maintenance by the patient. We will discuss how offering this type of treatment can contribute to practice growth and patient satisfaction.
At the completion of this course, participants will be able to:

- Recognize the role of implant biology, biomechanics and surface technology and how it relates to longevity in successful implant therapy.

- Understand how advancements in technology are allowing for simpler and more predictable incorporation of implant therapy into the practice.

- Understand the benefits of implant-supported, patient-specific restorative options for fully edentulous situations.

In every clinical setting there are bumps in the road, some large and some small, or ‘slowdowns’ which alter our time efficiency, decrease profitability, and can alter each patients ‘value’ in our delivery of care. From the simple procedure of the crown seat to a quality recording of a preparation, and from the decision of when to endodontically treat a tooth to the recommendation for an implant. When to bond and when to prep for a crown? How to bond teeth stronger and simplify our day to day restorative care and have our work look natural
and undistinguishable from those around it. These are all clinical challenges we face every day.

Making better choices and providing better dental care while decreasing the clinical challenges, will make each day better than what was happening prior to such knowledge. Making choices based upon ‘evidence based’ studies and clinically proven materials, methods, and techniques make all the difference in reducing the speed bumps and smooths out the highway for efficient clinical practice. Prepare for a wonderful lecture that will carry right into your clinic the next day you work.


• Understanding the importance in creating value in the dentistry each office provides. Increasing
case acceptance and moving the treatment plans from the charts or computer into the chair

• Know the benefits of implants, bone preservation, and tissue options for each dentist
in their practice. The benefits of preserving tooth structure and minimizing our levels of

• Adhesion principles of the preparation, the bond, the placement, the cure, and finally the
finish. Improving anterior composites with improved composite choices and posterior composites which look great and better yet last

• Principles of chemistry and material science which will make each and every crown
appointment less timely and more efficient. Each crown seat will be much easier in your practice and principles of occlusion which will benefit each office and each patient

• Techniques, methods, materials, and principles
which will address many of the clinical challenges we face every week in our offices
