Surgical and Restorative Techniques for Overdentures

Implant overdentures are an incredible service for your patients. Imagine the patient who has difficulty chewing, eating or speaking due to missing teeth. Or the patient who is afraid or embarrassed to smile because of missing teeth or fear of their dentures slipping out. Implant dentures can restore the ability to chew and enjoy food. Patients can also smile and laugh comfortably and freely, knowing that their dentures are fully supported with high-quality implants. Is there any denture patient who wouldn’t benefit from this service? Sign up for this module and learn how you can enhance the lives of your denture patients.
