INTRODUCTION. One of the largest areas lacking in the GP market is the knowledge on how to properly treatment plan full-mouth cases from both a surgical and prosthetic prespective. This course is about learning how to sit down chair-side with your patients and be able to offer a service that can be life changing. Not only will you learn how to convert an existing denture into a snap-retained or screw-retained prosthesis, but you will learn how to present these life-altering treatment options to your pateints.
SUMMARY. The planning and knowledge on how to make implant placement more efficient and predictable for our patients is priceless. Mentoring III (M3) teaches guided surgery from how to properly plan for large restorative cases to fully edentulous patients. Surgeries discussed and practiced will range from multiple single implants, implant-supported dentures, hybrids, and full-arch bridges. The course will detail the sequence on how to restore these cases from impression techniques to ideal materials and final processing. Also discussed will be vertical clearance, scanning appliances, CBCT interpretation, and fabrication of the surgical guide.
HANDS-ON and SURGERY. The hands-on workshop will include surgical 3D planning on computers and placing surgical guides on models. Each participant will practice denture conversion steps and processes before the live patient surgery. On the final day of the course and with the guidance of a supervised Mentor, each attending doctor will place 5-8 surgically guided implants on both tooth borne and edentulous patients.
