Module 6: Full Arch Implant Rehabilitation
With rapidly changing demographics of our current population, there has been an increase in number of patients who are either terminally dentate or edentulous.
Clinicians understand the limitations of conventional removable dentures. We also historically know that, bone grafting in atrophic jaw prior to placing implants will not only prolong the duration of treatment but is also highly unpredictable. The modern graftless solution using a combination of conventional and tilted implants (Zygoma and Pterygoid) is now a preferred method of treatment. Engaging the implants in patients’ natural bone gives high primary stability of the implants which allows for immediate loading of the fixed prosthesis.
This module will cover both surgical and restorative aspect of full arch rehabilitation. Participants will also be taught treating these full arch cases following analogue as well as full digital workflow. Digital workflow utilising the most up to date technology for planning, surgery and data acquisition for prosthesis fabrication will be included along with hand-on surgery and live surgery demonstration.
