Extractions, immediate loading, and varying full-arch prosthetic designs supported by four implants—all these variables of a graft-less approach with tilted implants introduced new considerations to implant placement. This hands-on program will address how these factors influence the surgical approach and will provide participants with the opportunity to practice these concepts under the guidance of experts in the full-arch immediate load temporary prosthesis.

Providing a provisional restoration at the time of implant placement is a major patient motivator. This process begins with the planning requirements for the restorative design in the diagnosis phase. This session will take the participant through the important planning considerations and how they correlate to the delivery of the provisional restoration. Then with models, participants will practice the denture conversion process to produce a screw-retained provisional restoration. This session is ideal for the periodontist, referred doctors, and lab techs.

Educational Objectives:
• Consider the pre-surgical and diagnostic procedures for a full-arch implant supported prosthesis.
• Gain the opportunity to learn how to convert a removable prosthesis to a fixed temporary.
• Grasp how to use the conversion prosthesis for the final prosthetic solutions for the patient and lab.
