Course Outline

If you are already placing dental implants to restore single and multiple units and wonder how to go to the next level of full arch replacement then this course is for you. Managing full arch replacement is a challenge be it overdenture or a screw retained hybrid. This requires good planning, managing patient expectations and good maintenance protocols. Selection of cases to manage within your skill set is critical.
