Restoration of Complete and Partial Edentulism

Product Details

Gordon J. Christensen, DDS, MSD, PhD

Prosthodontics can and should be a major service and revenue part of your practice! Despite constant education about proper oral hygiene and diet to the over 200 million adults in the US, there are about 40 million patients who are edentulous and nearly 90% of the remaining adults have lost at least one tooth.  BUT—which treatment is best for specific situations? Fixed or removable partial dentures, conventional edentulous treatment, copings on teeth and overdentures, or implant-supported “all-on-four” or more implants fixed or removable? Which are the most adequate abutments, Locators, ERAs, spheres, screwed on separate abutments, or screws through the prostheses, or numerous other options?  This video summarizes the long-term experience of numerous CR and PCC clinicians and researchers that will guide you and your staff with unbiased answers to these and many other difficult clinical questions.
