Exquisite Complete and Implant Retained Over-Dentures Calibrated for the General Practitioner

This presentation will cover the most important aspects of complete removable dentures reloaded to include implant retained over-dentures and why unsuccessful cases are generally a result of an inadequate assessment and poor esthetic analysis thereby leading to a weak treatment plan.
