Complex Treatment Planning

We again welcomed Dr. Geoffrey Cunningham to our 2016 Seminar Series, co-sponsored by Nobel Biocare. I liked one particular ‘pearl’ from Dr. Cunningham’s lecture. When treatment planning complex full arch, implant based restorations, especially when the occlusal plane is in doubt, “MAKE A DENTURE”. The interim denture will help both the restorative and surgical team identify appropriate incisal edge position and ensure adequate space is available for the proposed prosthesis. This allows appropriate implant placement and ensures a successful prosthesis and happy patient. Thanks Dr. Cunningham!
