In the seminar, there will be lecture and hands-on components. During the lecture, Dr. Adarve will discuss (1) the consequences of clinical edentulism, (2) relative functional capacity of the lower jaw, (3) indications and treatment options, (4) instrumentation and prosthetic steps. The hands-on part will provide attendees the opportunity to restore a model of the edentulous mandible with implants, locator abutments and denture.
“The restoration of the edentulous mandible with traditional or conventional denture is no longer the most appropriate choice of treatment. The implant-supported overdenture has now become the standard of care and there are numerous research publications to support this.”
