Complex Oral Rehabilitation

Product Details

Gordon J. Christensen, DDS, MSD, PhD

Most dentists accomplish at least some complex fixed prosthodontic cases, but many practitioners have not had an overall rehabilitation course.  There are numerous techniques and sequences to rehabilitate debilitated patients.  Some procedures are time-consuming, difficult and impractical; while others are relatively simple, logical and effective.  Observe Gordon treating a complex rehabilitative case from start to finish, including complete diagnostic and treatment planning procedures, tooth build-ups, posts & cores, tooth preparations, interocclusal records, provisional restorations, dentist and lab interaction, seating, and follow-up appointments.  By separating rehabilitative needs into segments, most moderate-income patients can be treated.  Simplify this needed concept for your practice!
