Event Details

In the last two decades, removable partial prosthodontics has become one of dentistry’s lost arts. Recently however, there seems to have been a resurgence of interest. As well as being affordable, removable partial dentures can provide the most efficient and least invasive solution for replacement of missing teeth. Correctly designed and executed removable prostheses can be the treatment of choice for many patients. This workshop will take you step-by-step through the process – from design to delivery
of resin and alloy-based dentures – and review the fundamental  philosophies and techniques needed to provide a successful denture.



Š Perspectives on history – from past to present
Š Denture design
Š What is a surveyor and how to use one
Š Mouth preparation
Š Stock trays and their modification
Š Maintenance issues
Š Implants as an adjunct to treatment
