Treatment of the Edentulous Arch

Surgical Session 2 advances the clinician’s skill level and knowledge of dental implants specific for the maxillary and mandibular edentulous arch. This surgical session of the Misch International Implant Institute will address all treatment plans including overdentures and fixed implant prostheses. The number and position of implants will be discussed in detail for implant-supported overdentures, soft-tissue supported overdentures, and fixed prostheses. Interactive treatment planning will be used to teach the attendee the use of surgical templates and reduction guides for implant placement in edentulous arches. Additionally, a comprehensive lecture will be given on medical and medication relative and absolute contraindications.
The hands-on component of this course will include exercises in tissue stretching to achieve tension-free closure, exposure of the mental foramen, advanced suturing, implant placement for overdentures, and implant placement for fixed prostheses utilizing guided surgical techniques.
