Description

When treatment planningf or acompletely edentulousarch,we have three primary options includinga convention aldenture, anoverdenture and a fixedbridge. Conventional dentures and fixedb ridges are more clearly understood than overdentures. Additionally, the literature is clear, success with overdentures in the lower arch is straightforward. While in the upper arch, success is elusive and much more challenging. Dr. Sharifi will clarify those differences and identify the reasons for them while presenting guidelines for success with overdentures in either arch. Clarification of the overdenture answers one question, but poses another on how attachment selection impacts overdenture fabrication.We have numerous attachment options to consider including rotational and non-rotational bars, resilient attachments and non-resilien tattachments as well as locking attachments that can act as ifwe have afixed bridge in a patient removable format. This presentation will clarify the indications and contra-indications and simplify attachment selection for overdenture therapy.
