Treatment Design and Implant Overdenture Outcomes

April 1, 2021

When practitioners prescribe implant overdentures, many treatment decisions—including choice of attachment systems, number of implants, functional loading protocol and prosthesis design—have a major impact on therapeutic outcomes. Optimized treatment requires a clear understanding and correct application of these factors during treatment planning. This issue of Prosthodontics Newsletter visits recently published evidence that will better prepare the practitioner to consider scientifically based outcome expectations during treatment planning for edentulous patients.
