Outcomes of the Course
Research and technical advances in implant dentistry have proven to increase the predictable success rates and improve survival rates in implant treatment. However, there are many clinical challenges that require proper management in order to achieve predictable clinical outcomes.
Full arch edentulous rehabilitation with immediately loaded implant retained fixed prosthesis can be desirable for our patients as compared to traditional treatment approach or implant removable prosthesis. This presentation will highlight the differences in these two treatment modalities and underscore the benefits of the “All-On-Four” approach.
- Comparison of “Traditional versus All-On-Four /All-In-Arch” treatment modalities
- Case selection criteria and treatment planning for All-On-Four Surgical parameters for optimal implant success
- Surgical parameters for optimal implant success
- Immediate conversion with provisionalization and immediate loading in All-On-Four
- Final full arch implant rehabilitation with a definitively fixed prosthesis
