Battle of the Specialties – Prosthodontic Solutions

Richard Ibbetson

This presentation compares implant-supported and tooth-supported fixed dental prostheses (FDPs) for missing teeth. In an entertaining manner, Richard Ibbetson argues that the way forward in fixed tooth replacement is through the use of dental implants, in spite of the enormous technical demands on the clinician. He uses research to juxtapose these two treatment modalities in terms of technical and mechanical complications (higher for implant-supported FDPs) and biological and terminal complications (higher for tooth-supported FDPs). A unifying theme of this lecture is the importance of communication with the patient and patient choice in tooth replacement.

At the end of this Congress Lecture you should be able to…

  • understand the differences between conventional tooth-supported FDPs and implant-supported FDPs
  • compare the complications related to tooth-supported FDPs and implant-supported FDPs
  • list the indications for tooth-supported FDPs
