Demystifying Attachment Dentistry: The All Day Attachment Dentistry Ultimate Course

New Course

Course Description

This course covers all aspects of attachment dentistry in detail and takes the mystery out of treatment planning segmented fixed bridges, removable partial dentures, over-dentures on natural teeth or implants.

This all-day program emphasizes the rationale for using precision and semi-precision attachments in the treatment planning of fixed and removable partial dentures, over-dentures and implants. Each of these prosthetic options is discussed in detail, especially implants which require special treatment planning considerations. The role of the restorative dentist is clarified as the one who initiates treatment planning the amount of implants that will insure success through the use of study models, wax bites, occlusal set ups and surgical stents. A clear understanding of what needs to be achieved must be established first by the restorative dentist and communicated to the surgeon and to the patient.

Clinical cases are reviewed and participants will gather knowledge, excitement and confidence enabling them to utilize attachments in their daily practice immediately. Participants are encouraged to bring questions which will be discussed throughout the presentation, as well as any of their past experiences with dental attachments.
