Complex Full Mouth Rehabilitation Involving Dental Implants and/or Natural Teeth: Aesthetic and Functional Management.

Abstract

It is always a challenge when a restorative dentist restores a full mouth rehabilitation patient. Many clinical factors must be considered when treating such cases. These factors can be classified into aesthetics, function, structure and biology. With the advent of dental implants and the introduction of new digital technology and software, many more treatment options and possibilities are available. Together with traditional treatment approach, it can be very confusing for the restorative dentist to decide what to do from start to end.

This lecture will cover
1. Diagnosis and aesthetic treatment planning
2. Treatment options and prosthetic designs
3. Step by step treatment sequence
4. Digital vs analog approach
