Prosthetic Space Considerations: Its Impact on Implant Placement
 
 
Implant dentistry has become an everyday procedure for tooth replacement due to predictability and conservation of tooth structure. However, implant prostheses many times can be compromised by inadequate space due to malpositioned dental implants in relation to the proposed prosthetic replacement. Through the use of case presentations, prosthetic and esthetic guidelines will be developed to aid in determining the necessary vertical space parameters required for proper surgical implant placement. This proper surgical technique will help facilitate the fabrication of different types of implant retained and supported prostheses.
 
At the conclusion of this course, attendees should be able to:
 
  • Understand Space relationships of various prosthetic designs.
  • Learn biomechanical treatment planning concepts
  • Understand surgical-prosthetic interrelationships
  • Tie these together to develop individualized diagnoses and treatment plans
