  2. Restorative dentist’s role in the creation of surgical guides for accurate fixture placement

  3. Splinting vs non-splinting of implants for overdentures

  4. Restorative space requirements for various full-arch prostheses

  5. “All-On-4” fixed/detachable prosthesis procedural steps

  6. Clinical step-by-step technique for overdenture fabrication

  7. Tooth selection and positioning for complete overdentures to achieve life-like restorations

  8. Avoiding complications / poor planning, and troubleshooting post-insertion complaints

Course Description:
