Implant Prosthodontics for the Fully Edentulous - Dr Christopher Ho

  • ADA NSW 69 Nicholson Street St Leonards, NSW, 2065 Australia (map)

The fully edentulous patient suffers from significant psychosocial effects from tooth loss, that is disabling and a physical handicap. This can lower self confidence and self image, with a need to keep tooth loss a secret. The ability to transform patients oral function and aesthetics can be life changing. Dr Christopher Ho  will outline the diagnosis and treatment planning involved in a comprehensive course on full arch implant prosthodontics. This will involve a comprehensive clinical evaluation assessing the restorative space, transition line, dento-facial aesthetics, phonetics, and occlusal vertical dimension. Learn the clinical techniques required for both removable and fixed options for treatment, with clinical examples highlighting the  steps required for the treatment sequence. There are a myriad of different treatment concepts from  from the single implant over denture to all on four treatment concept. In an evidence based manner the different concepts will be explained and guide you to the indications for each patient, whether it may be an all on four concept or require the addition of more implants to support fixed bridgework.
