January Program

Evening Lecture by Dr. Tony Daher

Thursday, January 31, 2013

Implant treatment for the edentulous patient is challenging due to inherent anatomic and biomechanical problems. Moreover, controversy persists as to factors critical for implant and prosthetic success. Established criteria for design of the maxillary vs. mandibular implant prosthesis are lacking. This lecture reviews some literature on maxillary and mandibular implant prostheses with an emphasis on number, length, and distribution of implants, connected or not connected anchorage systems, maintenance, and patient satisfaction.

This lecture examines 3 critical factors that direct the type of dental prostheses, early in the consultation process:

1. the nature of thepatient’s dental condition,

2. whether the residual ridge is visible in both the relaxed lip and smiling state and

3. the presence or theabsence of bone in the radiographic zones.

With the presentation of many clinical situations, this lecture gives indications and contraindications of some possible restorations.
