Describe the principles used to design single crowns for implants 2. Identify methods of managing less than optimal implant placements 3. Discuss the importance of cervical contour, marginal fit, and surface smoothness in achieving optimal soft tissue results (Afternoon Session) Computer-Aided Engineering of Complete Dentures and Implant Prostheses: A Rapidly Expanding Synergy Course Description Complete denture design and fabrication has been simplified using digital technology that combines CAD/CAM with automation tools. This process has been available for over 3 years allowing patient treatments to be completed in 2 or 3 appointments. Numerous clinical advancements and features have emerged since the process was introduced. This presentation will review the current status of clinical and technical procedures, illustrate and discuss the expanded options currently available, and show how the technology is being applied to implant prosthodontics, including the immediate loading of fixed complete dentures. Recent innovations continue to expand applications of the process and they will be included in the presentation. Course Objectives: Following this presentation, attendees with be able to: 1. Identify the advantages of CAD/CAM fabricated protheses 2. Understand the steps used to record the required clinical information 3.
