Designing the full mouth implant rehabilitation - from FP1 to FP3" Part1 and Part 2

Treatment planning with implants in full arch edentulous cases is always challenging in implant dentistry. Although prosthetically driven implant placement started being implemented the last 2 decades, implant placement became more accurate with the use of Digital technology and guided implant surgery.

The advancements of materials like Zirconia, CAD software’s, face scanners and CAM procedures have simplified the treatment workflow resulting in more predictable results with significantly less complications.

This presentation will focus on the treatment methodology of terminal dentition and edentulous cases with implants. Alignment procedures, CAD design, surgical and prosthetic guide stents and clinical procedures will be presented step by step. Furthermore, different options of the final restoration will be discussed in terms of CAM design and material choice.

Learning objectives:

  • Understand the rationale of different treatment modalities (fixed vs removable vs “retrievable”
  • Differentiate between FP1, FP2 and FP3 full arch implant restorations and adjust implant positions
  • Simplify guided implant placement procedures
  • Learn the “PROSTHETIC GUIDE” for immediate loading
  • Get acquainted with different techniques and material options for the final restoration
