Complete Arch Fixed Implant Rehabilitation: A Restorative Perspective

Antoanela Garbacea, DDS, MDS

Prosthetic reconstruction of the edentulous maxilla is recognized to be challenging and requires detailed data collection and planning. Understanding the esthetic and structural risk factors based on lip dynamics and prosthetic space availability will improve favorable outcome predictability in complex situations. This presentation will identify the optimal prosthetic design and will provide a patient specific assessment guide regarding treatment planning of the edentulous maxilla for fixed or removable implant supported prostheses. The interdisciplinary team will be provided specific guidelines to identify the patient condition and the potential solutions.

Upon completion of this presentation, participants should be able to: 1) explain the significance of the preoperative evaluation of the patient’s existing condition prior to planning comprehensive treatment; 2) choose conservative treatment options based on the patient’s specific anatomical characteristics, bone resorption pattern, optimal prosthetic emergence profile, and the significance of the prosthesis for facial and dental esthetics; and 3) recognize the esthetic, biological and structural limitation that can lead to irreversible failure.
