Implant Configurations for Fixed Dental Prostheses
Subject to the clinical situation different design configurations may be possible for implant-supported prostheses. The treatment plan must be prosthodontically driven and the prosthesis design based on the clinical conditions to ensure that the appropriate number of implants are placed in the correct prosthetic positions using implants with appropriate dimensions.
Each prosthesis design has its advantages and disadvantages. In this Learning Pathway the principles for implant configurations for single-tooth spaces, short and extended spaces and completely edentulous arches are set out in a dedicated Learning Module. The clinical application of the configuration principles are then demonstrated in the Clinical Case examples and discussed in three Congress Lectures.
After completing this Learning Pathway you should be able to...
describe the implant configurations for fixed dental prostheses in single tooth spaces, in short and extended edentulous spaces and in edentulous jaws
discuss the clinical considerations and design principles that govern the application of the configuration principles in patient cases
