LVI: Comprehensive Implant Restorative Course: Single Implant Restorations to Implant Retained Dentures & Everything in Between

Sep 21-23, 2014

This 3-day course focuses on the restoration of the simple to more advanced implant clinical cases, both fixed and removable. The objective of this course is to build confidence in the dental team to successfully take on and systematically complete these simple to challenging cases. If your patients require implants in combination with natural teeth, a full mouth implant reconstruction or even an implant denture reconstruction, this course is designed to provide the tools and procedures required to successfully manage and complete these cases.

The objectives of this course are for the participant to be able to:

  • Comprehensively Sequence the removable prosthesis
  • Communicate effectively with the denture patient
  • Discuss functionality of all types denture options

Partial Dentures

  1. Take the Impression for partial
  2. Take the bite
  3. Retain? Tooth vs. Implant


  1. Fabricate a NM denture that is more stable than a traditional denture (Covered in New You Denture Just Highlights)

Retained Dentures
