Single Crowns to Full Arch Bridges

Friday, May 3, 2024

More details to come.



Thousands, if not millions of implant-supported crowns and full arch bridges are inserted each year around the world. However, few clinical guidelines exist to aid the clinician in following appropriate protocols for final delivery of restorations, to ensure long-term success and health of the implant restorations. This presentation will discuss various principles and rules before delivery of implant-supported crowns and bridges that can be immediately and easily incorporated in one’s clinical practice and ensure long term success.  The second part of the presentation will focus exclusively on must know diagnostic and treatment planning keys for full arch fixed prosthesis using Bone, Smile, Lips and Gums as determinant factors.

Course Objectives


  • Understand the differences in principles of inserting crowns on natural teeth vs dental implants

  • Understand “must-know” rules for inserting crowns and bridges supported by dental implants

  • Understand consequences of leaving excess residual cement and prevention of this situation

  • Know when it makes sense to use screw-retained restorations and when to use cement-retained restorations

  • Learn and implement a prosthodontic safety checklist to obtain consistent results

  • Clinically differentiate various types of patients seeking implant-supported fixed prosthesis

  • Understand management of the “terminal dentition” or the “to be edentulated” patient seeking implant-supported fixed prosthesis
