Implant supported over dentures the oncology challenge
Brooklands Technical College, UK
: Dent Health Curr Res
I will be looking at over dentures on Cad/Cam bars, mainly focusing on the more challenging extreme oncology/ obturator cases. All the cases are mainly maxillary but I will touch on the more general overdenture case looking at patient choice verses function. I will look at if going Cad/ Cam is always the best option and how can manual milling help or are gold bars still a true positive alternative. How to choose the right attachment for the case and is the choice important? I will also look to see if the choice of the Cad milling company is important or is it the operator that is the key for success and how far can you push the limits?
