AGD Code: 670.

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 is the first course of a 5-course series on Keys to Complete Denture Success. Each course focuses on fundamental elements of fabricating complete dentures and may be completed on its own as a standalone course or in conjunction with the others. Subsequent courses in the series will be released soon!

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 less problems during the fabrication process and after the completed dentures are delivered.

Educational Objectives:
Upon completion of this course, you should be able to:
  • Discuss the importance of all denture fabrication steps being done competently by the dentist, dental assistant and dental lab technician to create well-made complete dentures which (1) are stable, (2) have good retention, occlusal vertical dimension and esthetics, and (3) all posterior teeth contact evenly in centric relation occlusion.
  • Discuss that sometimes denture fabrication results are adequate and sufficient, and the patient still rejects the dentures.
  • Discuss the components of the consultation/examination appointment for the edentulous patient and how to decide if you want to treat or refer the case.

As noted in the other review - this course should be labeled as Step 1 of a multiple-part series. Great job reviewing the fundamentals/keys to complete denture success

This course provides useful information for evaluating a patient. However, this course is PART OF A SERIES, which was not mentioned in the description. He is a good teacher, but don't expect to learn more than the initial evaluation exam appointment.
