Course Description:

Treatment planning provides the key for successful outcomes when providing dental treatment.  Treating the edentulous patient is no exception.  Now with the advent of incorporating dental implants into a treatment plan for the edentulous patient, the treatment may become more predictable and can reach a higher level of patient satisfaction.  Today, dental implants are considered as a treatment option and one of the standards of care when developing a treatment plan for this specific patient population.  This presentation will investigate the unique considerations undertaken when evaluating this patient for treatment with dental implants and the sequence necessary for communication with the implant surgeon, the restorative dentist, and the dental laboratory.

Course Objectives:

  • Understand the pre-treatment treatment planning principles necessary for treating the edentulous patient.

  • Understand the treatment limitations when considering dental implants as a treatment option.
