About the Course

The continued need for complete denture treatment in the United States means that many of the concepts and procedures taught in dental school curriculums remain relevant. However, recent research has shed new light on some long-standing concepts in denture treatment. In addition, the fabrication of complete dentures utilizing digital technology is likely to be more common in the near future. Current practitioners may not have been exposed to some of these newer concepts while receiving their training.
This intermediate-level course is intended to serve as both a review and an introduction to some of the more recent information and developments in complete denture fabrication. After completing this course, the practitioner will be better equipped to provide quality denture care in a less stressful and more cost-effective manner for both clinician and patient.

Course Objectives
  1. Identify reasons for the need for complete denture treatment.
  2. Discuss the consequences of edentulism and the comorbidities involved.
  3. Describe the maxillary and mandibular anatomy essential for complete denture support and the impression procedures necessary to obtain accurate preliminary and final impressions.
  4. Select anterior teeth for complete dentures based on current research recommendations.
  5. Develop an evidence-based philosophy of complete denture occlusion.
  6. Describe the key elements involved in the digital denture technique.
  7. Explain key factors in patient satisfaction with complete denture treatment.
