“Recipe for Treating The Endentulous Patient: From Dentures to Hybrids (and everything in between)!”

Friday, March 5, 2021 – 7:45 AM TO 5:15 PM

The program will concentrate on the nuts and bolts of the fully edentulous patient and/or the soon to be fully edentulous patient. Where do you begin? How do we develop a proper/appropriate treatment plan? Once developed, how are we going to execute that treatment plan to its highest level? What materials should we use to return our patients to proper form and function.

This program is geared for the everyday private practice clinician and will hopefully empower you with a greater level of knowledge that you can take back to your practices on Monday morning that will enable you to be a better diagnostician, a better clinician thus being a much more valuable asset to your patients.

IN THIS PRESENTATION, YOU WILL LEARN:

  • Establish and understand key prosthodontic principles of complete edentulism
  • Understand the importance of diagnosis and the importance of sound diagnosis prior to initiating definitive treatment
  • Review anatomy of the edentulous arch; what makes that impression a “great impression”
  • Various treatment modalities for full arch patients: complete dentures; implant assisted and supported overdentures, and fixed hybrids
  • A review of various attachment systems that are out there for your over denture cases
  • Develop a “recipe” to ensure predictability in full arch implant supported fixed restorations
  • Be able to categorize various types of patients as well as classifications of various prosthetics
  • Discuss the analog world vs the digital world of diagnosis and full arch treatment
  • Discuss various materials that are on the market for our full arch cases
  • Last but not least, we’re gonna make dentures and full arch, edentulous patients cool again!!

Brandon A. James, DDS, Prosthodontist

Dr. James graduated with honors from the University of Oklahoma College of Dentistry in 2005. Following completion of dental school Dr. James continued his pursuit of excellence by completing a three- year post-doctoral program in Prosthodontics at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio College of Dentistry. Dr. James has obtained board eligibility status by the members of the American Board of Prosthodontics.

Dr. James is an active member of multiple professional organizations including the American College of Prosthodontists (ACP), Academy of Osseointegration, American Dental Association, Oklahoma Dental Association, Kansas Dental Association and is actively pursuing membership in the American Academy of Restorative Dentistry.

Dr. James brings with him a level of knowledge and understanding that is second to none when it comes to diagnosing, treating, and managing even the most difficult of your dental problems. Dr. James is quite proficient in all aspects of implant, esthetic and prosthetic dentistry. In addition, he has been highly trained in treatment planning, guided “virtual” dental implant planning, implant surgery, complete dentures, implant retained or supported complete dentures, implant retained crowns and bridges, implant retained full arch fixed bridges, crowns, veneers, cosmetic dentistry, sleep apnea, children with congenital defects of the oral hard and soft tissues and complex multidisciplinary treatment planning and execution of those plans.

Dr. James will be navigating the audience through his thought processes when treatment planning the edentulous patient. The edentulous patient is not going away and we will be discussing how we should decide what the best treatment for various patients should be; should we use locator attachments? If so how many? Should we use a bar? If so with what type of attachments? Should we provide a removable or a fixed solution? Is one better than the other? Is the All on 4 solution a fad or scientific revolution? We will be answering these questions and more in hopes of better equipping you to diagnose and treat the next patient that comes your way.
