Attachment Systems for Implant-Supported Overdentures
An ACDE Series Webinar

Course Description:

Implant-supported overdentures provide clinicians with a cost-effective means of restoring the edentulous arch. Various attachment systems have been implemented in the fabrication of these prostheses. The key to a predictable restorative outcome is planning ahead for the desired abutment and attachment before dental implants are placed.

Learning Objectives:

At the conclusion of this course, participants will be able to:

  1. Describe various attachment systems used for implant overdentures.
  2. Realize the importance of prosthetically-driven implant and abutment planning for overdenture therapy.
  3. Understand the impact of implant divergence and restorative space requirements for implant overdentures
