Canada’s elderly population is growing, a trend that began several decades ago. In 2007, the population aged 65 and older was 4.4 million and seniors made up 13% of the total population. With the growing aging population, more of our patients will be seeking treatment options for replacement of missing teeth. Implant-supported overdentures offer highly predictable treatment outcomes for completely and partially edentulous patients. Proper treatment planning and patient evaluation are crucial in achieving ideal treatment outcomes. The focus of this unique, comprehensive 2-evening program is to provide the general practitioner with key concepts regarding implant-supported overdentures. The first evening will consist of a comprehensive didactic program covering the indications and contraindications for implant overdentures, overdenture treatment planning and design. Numerous clinical examples will demonstrate both maxillary and mandibular complete and partial overdentures using attachments and various bar assemblies. We will also introduce several patients who were treated with implant overdentures and give them the opportunity to discuss their experiences with you The second evening will be a hands-on program. The hands-on program will cover all the clinical steps involved with fabrication of implant overdentures. Participants will have the opportunity to make final impressions, make a verification index, try in both a CAD/CAM milled bar and conventional cast bar. You will also have the opportunity to convert a conventional denture to an attachment overdenture using locator attachments, a skill that can be incorporated in other aspects of removable dentistry Objectives 1. To review the indications/contraindications and treatment planning strategies for the implant supported overdenture. 2. To review the various designs for both maxillary and mandibular overdentures 3. To review different types of overdenture bars, including cast and CAD/CAM milled bars and attachments. 4. To introduce patients who have been treated with implant overdentures. 5.
