Running Time: 27 min Language:
This lecture will explore a mechanism for converting an existing conventional denture to an implant retained overdenture and also how to use implants with removable partial dentures. We will look at trimming out the existing conventional denture and picking up locator attachments so that they are incorporated into the original denture base, giving the patient a spare overdenture. We will also look at the use of small numbers of implants. For example: one on a lower arch case to retain a partial denture simply by one implant in which this case supposes an overdenture. And, finally we will look at an additional case: a bi-lateral extension case retained solely by two locater attachments.
