Introduction to Implant Dentistry
Occlusion for Fixed Dental Prostheses
Occlusal forces present a risk factor for hardware complications in implant-supported prostheses. This Learning Pathway examines the nature of occlusal forces and the ability of implants and their prostheses to withstand them as well as offers guidelines for occlusal design to reduce risk of complications. The Learning Pathway comprises a Learning Module, two lectures, a Consensus Statement, and Clinical Case examples.
On completion of this Learning Pathway you should be able to:
recognize characteristics of occlusal forces and the biophysical differences in how teeth and implants respond to them
discuss the potential impact of occlusal forces on complications and failures of implants and their prostheses
apply literature guidelines for occlusal management in implant therapy
describe examples of occlusal schemes in clinical scenarios
