Traditional crown and bridge restorations, removable prosthetics, and endoesseous implant therapy all begin with a sound treatment plan and continue through the various phases of care, including diagnosis, laboratory communication, impressions, provisionalization, final delivery, and on-going oral-health maintenance. The advancement of new procedures and technology within the specialty of Prosthodontics continues to evolve and grow at an accelerated rate, and an exhaustive knowledge base for any aspect of prosthodontics is simply not possible. This presentation, however, will cover many of the overlapping protocols, philosophies and materials that are currently available to achieve predictable long-term results, produce high-end aesthetics, and ensure successful patient outcomes.
- Recognize appropriate case selection criteria to ensure long-term success for fixed, removable, and implant restorative therapy.
- Analyze many of the current materials available to the dental clinician and laboratory technician that can be utilized in the restoration of implants, fixed crown and bridge, and removable prosthetic treatment plans.
- Determine the chairside/benchtop protocols that will ensure the highest efficacy as well as quality final product at delivery.
- Apply course concepts and techniques to current patient base.
