CE: Dual-Arch Implant Overdenture Treatment Protocols Michael D. Scherer, DMD, MS
Patients who require transitioning from natural teeth to dental implants present a unique challenge to clinicians. Fixed and removable treatment options may both become ideal possibilities for a patient, depending on the patient’s clinical presentation. Patients who are interested in fixed options but may not have the financial resources to be able to afford this more expensive alternative often may choose removable overdenture solutions. This article discusses ideal treatment planning strategies for patients interested in dual-arch overdenture restorations and reviews a clinical case describing this treatment.
