Program Summary Implant therapy has dramatically broadened the prosthetic treatment spectrum for the completely edentulous patient experiencing retention problems with conventional dentures. Excellent long-term results have been reported using both implant-retained and implant-supported restorative modalities. This presentation reviews the current approaches to rehabilitating the edentulous jaw using dental implants. Factors critical to treatment planning will be discussed, including proper case selection, treatment sequencing, indication and selection of prosthetic design, choice of surgical protocol, number of implants required, spatial requirements, as well as cost and patient satisfaction. A step-by-step demonstration of clinical and laboratory steps will be presented, including lab-based and chair-side denture retrofitting procedures. Intra-operative complications and post-insertion maintenance recommendation will be also discussed. The afternoon hands-on session will provide participants with the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the different procedural steps and prosthetic components related to implant-retained overdentures. The participants will complete the following exercises: - Measure soft tissue height, select and install appropriate LocatorTM abutment - Make a final impression for an implant-retained overdenture using the LocatorTM attachment system - Retrofit an existing mandibular denture using the LocatorTM attachment system - Reline a mandibular denture using a direct –pick-up technique
