Topic: Removable Prosthodontics: Complete Denture and Implant-supported Overdentures
Complete dentures have been the prosthetic treatment of choice for edentulism for many years and are indicated for the rehabilitation of edentulous patients to provide comfort, aesthetics, occlusal and facial support, masticatory function and to improve the speech. Advances in implant dentistry and the introduction of implant-supported overdentures have significantly improved the patients’ satisfaction and quality of life, especially in patients with resorbed alveolar ridges where the retention and stability of the conventional complete denture is compromised. This lecture will cover the important aspects of complete denture treatment including implant-supported removable prostheses.
