AM Session



This presentation will detail the procedures for building the foundation for the Neuromuscular Complete Dentures, Immediate Dentures and Implant assisted Dentures. The latest analog procedures from meeting your patient to impressioning, taking records, esthetic review, and fabrication with the choice of Conventional versus Digital Processing will be reviewed. This process yields the optimal placement of dental implants by doing dual scanning of the prosthesis in the implant planning stage. Many unique tips will be discussed to stay out of trouble and predict the outcome before beginning treatment


Upon completion of the course, you will be able to:

  • Implement digital assessment and examination protocol
  • Make accurate impressions for edentulous, denture and implant scenarios
  • Measure the esthetic and functional spaces to assist in determining final esthetic and implant vertical requirements
  • Discuss why we need to make an impression of the edentulous ridges vs. digitally scanning at this point in time
  • Discuss the decision in determining when to print vs. milling a denture prosthesis.



PM Session


Each participant will be able to perform impressions for several overdenture designs and perform pickups for different implant prosthesis scenarios. This session is intended to allow the dentists to be comfortable with both impressioning and direct pickup procedures for different types of implant-supported prostheses.


Upon completion of the course, you will be able to:

  • Review guidelines for diagnosis and treatment planning of partial and full implant-retained, tissue-supported overdentures.
  • Perform direct and indirect techniques for efficient and accurate pick-up of the denture attachments.
  • Provide an overview of the latest technologies in removable attachment systems.
  • Make impressions for various removable implant-assisted prostheses.
