1. Prosthodontic Principles for Complete Dentures 
 
The number of edentulous patients in America will grow to 38 million over the next 15 years. Prosthodontic principles serve as the basis for traditional patient care and more advanced procedures. Associated clinical and laboratory prosthodontic techniques will also be described.

Course Topics:
• Edentulous patient examination
• Recognizing and diagnosing difficult denture patients
• Keys to communicate with the edentulous patient
• Evaluation of restorative space
• Characterization of and transition options for patients with a terminal dentition
• Immediate denture therapy
• Tooth supported overdenture therapy
• Prosthodontic principles and techniques for fabricating complete dentures.
 

2. Treatment Planning and Procedures for the Edentulous Patient

The number of edentulous patients in America will grow to 38 million over the next 15 years. A wide range of surgical and prosthetic therapies exist for the treatment of edentulism. This course will assist the clinician in deciding which therapies will satisfy patients and will review the existing evidence as a basis for treatment planning decisions. A broad continuum of clinical presentations and procedures will be discussed. Associated clinical and laboratory prosthodontic techniques will also be described. 

Course Topics:
• Implant-supported overdenture therapies
• Treatment planning the edentulous patient
• Conventional fixed-detachable hybrid denture techniques
• Keys to communicate with the implant patient
• Evaluation of restorative space
• Direct attachments
• Laboratory communication
• Radiographic and surgical guide stents
