Advancements in Dentures

The delivery of the complete dentures is the starting point in the long journey of continued care for the individual. Patients will often receive continued care for many years after the reconstructive process of complete dentures. Due to the lack of surface area in the mandibular arch, advancements in denture prosthodontics have led to the addition of anchorage devices such as dental implants and attachments for the retention of mandibular complete dentures.


  • Diagnose and treatment plan an edentulous mandible for implant therapy.
  • Distinguish the treatment sequence for the surgical placement of implants.
  • Distinguish the treatment sequence for prosthetic restoration of overdentures.
