Representing Japan

We sometimes meet patients who have lost many teeth or have severe periodontitis. Full-mouth reconstruction with implant treatments may be the solution, especially for patients who will not accept conventional removable dentures. In such cases, we often need bone augmentation such as GBR or sinus elevation to perform implant placements due to insufficient bone volume.   On the other hand, screw-retained prostheses have advantages over cement-retained ones regarding maintenance in full-mouth rehabilitation.

Learning Objectives:  At the completion of this presentation, participants should be able to:

  1. Understand an overview of GBR and sinus elevation (crestal approach)
  2. Appreciate occlusal screw-retained prostheses, and the exceptional use of horizontal screws
  3. Use membranes in the GBR technique
