Implant dentistry has now fully embraced the “full arch” implant solution as arguably the most direct path to replacing terminal dentition. But clinicians, beware! Success is ultimately defined by patient satisfaction and acceptance, not the technology deployed. Unsatisfied patients can become a practice’s biggest liability. Post treatment complaints can include speech impairment, occlusal discrepancy, esthetics, and lip support.
This course identifies the challenges and complications that many clinicians will face in their journey to becoming a competent and effective full arch implant provider and provide solutions to avoid these obstacles. The following themes will set the foundation for improving clinical proficiency and patient satisfaction.
- Critical diagnostic requirements for full arch
- Defining a patient’s most exacting treatment objectives
- Limitations and advantages of the Full Arch prosthetic design
- How pre-treatment smile design eliminates post-treatment dissatisfaction
- Improving the patient experience
- Understanding prosthetic determinants and their role in lab communication
