Graftless Solutions for the Management of the Severely Atrophic Edentulous Patient
Tilting implants and the reported success of the All-on-4® treatment concept has allowed us to reconsider many conventional treatment approaches for the completely edentulous full arch patient. Graftless solutions with reduced post-surgical morbidities and immediate provisionalization is often more appealing to potential patients than traditional approaches that require significant grafting procedures. This lecture will discuss and highlight some of these alternative treatment options available to edentulous and soon to be edentulous patients.
• Understand the advantages and disadvantages to these approaches
• Understand the surgical and prosthetic modifications associated with these alternative approaches
• Identify the indications and contraindications to graftless edentulous solutions available to the completely edentulous and soon to be edentulous patients
