Dental Implant TEAM Network: Dental Assistant Track
Over the last several decades, dental implants have changed the way we treat our patients and have revolutionized treatment options. This lecture will review the various prosthetic techniques, including options such using Locator® or OD Secure® attachments for fixed-detachable implant overdentures. Use of angled and straight multi-unit abutments for the full-arch immediate load fixed prosthetic protocol will also be presented. We will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of various treatment modalities for completely edentulous patients.
