Implant restoration of the partially and completely edentulous patient has become increasingly prevalent. However, despite relatively high implant survival rates, patients are not always completely satisfied with the result. This presentation will review evidence-based, differential implant treatment planning in order to address clinician- and patient-based concerns. The benefit/risk calculus of alternative prosthetic designs, including conventional rehabilitation, will serve as a basis for a comprehensive informed consent for the patient and will offer a more predictable algorithm for the practitioner. The importance of a team approach will be emphasized.
This course is designed for all dental practitioners interested in the most recent information on implant treatment planning.
