Removable prosthodontics: Facing the professional challenge

Presentation Description

This lecture is aimed at igniting your enthusiasm and love for dentures, showing how we can change our patients’ lives with beautifully made dentures. I will present a Scandinavian technique used to make partial dentures function like “removable bridges”. This system allows for future tooth additions onto cobalt chromium minor connectors in the event of support teeth failure. This is based on splinting mobile teeth protecting the periodontium from occlusal forces. I will show the steps to achieve predictable results.

Learning Outcomes:

1. Illustrate the construction methods and function of partial dentures which work like removable bridges, protecting the periodontium of compromised abutment teeth.
2. To appreciate that well designed and well-made removable dentures are valid alternatives to implant supported restorations.
3. Describe a system of partial denture design which anticipates future abutment failure allowing artificial tooth additions onto cobalt chromium minor connectors of the denture later.
