Webinar | The Perfect Pair: Maxillary Denture and the Mandibular Hybrid

Restoring the edentulous patient challenges us with many treatment options which can be overwhelming at times.

From complete dentures, to 2-implant overdentures, to fixed hybrids, how do we know which option is best? This one hour webinar will discuss a very specific case type: a maxillary denture opposing a fixed implant hybrid. The rationale for this "perfect pair" will be discussed, as well as a step by step approach to treatment planning that can be applied to all patients who need and want this treatment option.

Learning Objectives:

  • Determine how to identify the perfect candidates for this perfect pair
  • Distinguish the advantages of this treatment option which will build confidence with case presentation
  • Describe how to sequence treatment, a step by step approach
  • Customize what a denture conversion process looks like
  • Develop the occlusal scheme necessary for this option
