"Clinical Protocols for Full Arch Fixed Implant-Supported Prostheses"
Presented by: Dr. Avinash Bidra, M.S., F. A. C. P.

Course Description:
Fixed implant-supported prostheses have gained tremendous popularity over the years.  It is necessary to treat each patient uniquely and avoid using a generic or a similar design of fixed prosthesis for all patients. This presentation will focus on a systematic method of diagnosis and treatment planning that helps to categorize patients seeking fixed prostheses into four classes based on the amount of tissue loss, position of anterior teeth in relation to residual ridge, type of smile, need for lip support and need for gingival prosthesis. Additional practical considerations related to surgeries, choice of biomaterial, treatment cost, practice overheads, professional and at-home maintenance will be presented.

Course Objectives:
▪To clinically differentiate various types of patients seeking implant-supported fixed prosthesis using the four keys to treatment planning: bone, smile, lips, gums
▪To understand when lip support is required and when it does not make a difference
▪To clinically differentiate when gingival prosthesis is needed
▪To understand management of edentulous gummy smile patients seeking maxillary fixed prosthesis
▪To understand professional and at-home maintenance protocols for patients with implant-supported fixed prosthesis
