Restorative Implantology – Module #3 (2019)


This is a 3-day course on Restorative Implantology dealing with Full Arch Restorations, which contains both didactic and practical components, designed for the general dentist to add to their daily clinical repertoire. The content is strongly evidence-based, aiding the clinical operator to have confidence that their procedures have been validated by research.

This course provides a total of 24 hours of scientific CPD.


Module 3 covers full arch fixed AND removable implant supported prostheses. This includes:

  • Diagnosis and treatment planning through “prosthetically driven” implant placement and positioning;
  • Concepts for improving stability/retention of full arch prostheses;
  • Obtaining ideal vertical dimension based on function and aesthetics;
  • Dental arch positioning based on function (neutral zone) and aesthetics (smile design);
  • Difference between and significance of implant protected, bilateral balanced and lingualised occlusion for full arch prostheses;
  • Use of alveoloplasty for surgical and prosthetic movement of transition lines for improved aesthetics;
  • Use of alveoloplasty to improve lip support for fixed prostheses without the use of flanges;
  • Full arch immediate implant supported fixed provisionalisation and loading, taking into account alveoloplasty;
  • Full arch impression, verification, registration and try-in techniques;
  • Differences between implant retained and implant supported removable prostheses;
  • Concept of hinge movement for tissue support in implant retained prostheses;
  • Design principles and attachment positioning on bars for implant supported prosthesis to improve stability;
  • Fixed implant supported prostheses designs (prosthetic vs. natural gingival tissue);
  • Effect of mandibular flexure on prosthesis design and implant placement;
  • Methods to overcome excessive bone loss due to edentulism using angled/tilted implants and angled abutments;
  • Effect of force generation of implant supported prostheses against each other;
  • Effect of force generation of implant supported prostheses against tissue supported prostheses;
  • Relining removable prostheses which are supported by two single round attachments;
  • Relining removable prostheses which are supported by a bar;
  • Replacement of fractured clips.
