Keys to Complete Denture Success: Increase Your Complete Denture Success and the Important Consultation/Examination Appointment

Cost: $36

Format: Online Video Course

CE details: 2 hours of CE credit

 

This is the first course of a 5-part series on Keys to Complete Denture Success. For other courses, see here.

Course Description:

A denture service can be a positive life-changing experience for an edentulous patient. It can also be a very negative struggle for the patient and dentist. This course addresses why denture services are often unpredictable and how to improve predictability and success. It also covers the important consultation/examination appointment. Understanding your patient’s existing problems and concerns and their wants and expectations regarding new edentulous restorations is extremely important for success. Also, evaluate their existing oral conditions and determine if you think you can successfully treat the edentulous patient - successfully for the patient and successfully for the dentist and team. Life is too short to fabricate complete dentures unpredictably and unsuccessfully. This series of courses will show you a much better way. Learn and incorporate the Keys to Complete Denture Success into your workflow to have fewer problems during the fabrication process and after the completed dentures are delivered.

Keys to Complete Denture Success: Simplified Final Impression Technique

Cost: $36

Format: Online Video Course

CE details: 2.5 hours of CE credit

 

This is the second course of a 5-part series on Keys to Complete Denture Success. For other courses, see here.

Course Description:

Course 2 addresses the intra-oral structures that are important to record in adequate edentulous final impressions. It also presents a simplified final impression technique for tissue supported complete dentures including how to determine and mark the posterior extension of the maxillary denture and how to locate, mark and record the retromolar pads in the lower impression. Also discussed is the importance of recording a preliminary centric relation/vertical dimension of occlusion record for the lab to use to mount the master casts for fabricating the set up for the records appointment. This reduces frustration for the dentist, saves chair time, and increases quality of the final dentures. Also covered are important devices for fabricating complete dentures including the alma gauge, Swissedent wax rim former, papillameter and alameter. Life is too short to fabricate complete dentures unpredictably and unsuccessfully. This series of courses will show you a much better way. Learn and incorporate the Keys to Complete Denture Success into your workflow to have less problems during the fabrication process and after the completed dentures are delivered. The keys are very important to increase your success and the keys are covered in courses 1-5. Make your complete denture service an enjoyable, successful and profitable service you offer your patients.

Keys to Complete Denture Success: Simplifying the Determination and Recording of VDO, CR, and Positions of Teeth for Complete Dentures

Cost: $36

Format: Online Video Course

CE details: 2 hours of CE credit

 

This is the third course of a 5-part series on Keys to Complete Denture Success. For other courses, see here.

 

Course Description:

This is the third course of a 5-course series on Keys to Complete Denture Success and addresses in detail simplified methods for determining and recording the positions of denture teeth, vertical dimension of occlusion and centric relation for success and predictability of complete denture restorations. Life is too short to use wax rims to make records for the vertical dimension of occlusion and centric relation for complete dentures. Wax rims are bulky, cumbersome, difficult to adjust and often lead to inaccurate records. This course will show you a much better way. The sequence of steps for refining the contours of the maxillary aesthetic wax rim to record the positions of denture teeth is discussed in detail. This includes how to determine the positions of the anterior teeth for aesthetics when severe bone resorption has occurred, how to determine the dental midline, and how to adjust and record the occlusal plane. For the predictability of denture fabrication, it is very important to accurately determine and record an acceptable vertical dimension of occlusion. Simplified clinical steps are explained in detail. It is very important to precisely locate and record centric relations. Simplified clinical steps for this are discussed in detail.

CE details: TBA

 

This is the fifth course of a 5-part series on Keys to Complete Denture Success. For other courses, see here.

 

Course Description:

This is the fifth and last course of a 5-course series on "Keys to Complete Denture Success" and presents important keys to tissue-supported complete denture success regarding techniques and steps for delivering dentures, including: • laboratory steps for processing and finishing dentures including the importance of controlling the polymerization shrinkage of the acrylic resin during processing of dentures. • details regarding how to adjust lingualized denture occlusion after denture processing. • discussing in detail techniques for delivering successful complete dentures including effective use of white silicone paste to adjust the denture bases to adapt well to the supporting tissues. • that it is recommended to not adjust occlusion on tissue-supported complete dentures intraorally using articulating paper and the steps to accurately adjust denture occlusion intraorally. • Post denture delivery appointment adjustments and problem-solving patient concerns. • Important considerations if a denture reline is necessary on the new dentures.

Keys to Complete Denture Success  — Better Ways to Make Dentures

Format: In-Person at Amarillo College, West Campus, Amarillo, Texas

Registration: Contact Thomas Karr, DDS, MAGD, President of the Panhandle Academy of General Dentistry, at  tom@khdds.com.
 

Course Description:

This exciting denture course addresses Keys (fundamental principles) and techniques for success in fabricating complete dentures. Understanding and applying the Keys discussed should lead to better quality edentulous restorations, increased patient acceptance of new complete denture restorations, and more fulfillment for the dental team fabricating dentures. Incorporating these Keys should also increase treatment efficiency and decrease the time required to fabricate dentures. This course is divided into 5 modules, each addressing important fundamentals, including the oral examination/ consultation appointment, final impressions, determining and recording vertical dimension of occlusion, centric relation, and tooth position, the wax tryin and patient acceptance appointment, and denture delivery. Many important concepts will be discussed, including the use of the alma gauge to aid in determining anterior tooth position, injection processing to control shrinkage of acrylic resin, lingualized occlusion, lingual control lines, making accurate records of vertical dimension of occlusion and centric relation using the gothic arch tracer which is easier and consistently more accurate than records using wax rims, and accurately adjusting denture occlusion. Concepts are presented in detail, including the rationale for recommendations, and photographs show details of the steps.
