Course Title: Implant Retained Removables: The Least-Stressful Replacement Option
Course Description: When faced with either partial or full edentulism, the options that are available to most patients are often limited to either conventional dentures, which are poorly retained, or implant-retained fixed prostheses, which are very expensive, complicated, and stressful for the providing dentist. Implant retained removable dentures are a wonderful “middle-ground” option. The problem is that they require knowledge and comfort with all the tiny parts and pieces needed for successful execution. In this entertaining and highly practical presentation, Dr. Gupta simplifies this process, providing a simple, step-by-step guide from the new patient consult all the way to final seating.
- Gain a general overview of all long-span replacement options, understanding the benefits and limitations of each
- Discover the long-term benefits that implant retained removable options uniquely create
- Attain clear understanding of the details, steps, and supplies needed from start to finish
- Understanding several internal and external marketing strategies to individuals in your community who are frustrated with their ill-fitting dentures
Speaker Bio: Dr. Gupta after completing a one-year GPR in Cleveland, started a practice from scratch in 2005. Armed with what he considered adequate knowledge, hand skills, and a personable demeanor, he watched as his practice floundered, finances became un-predictable, and his lower back and spirit toward life became worrisome. Rather than continue the trend, he made a guinea pig out of his office, family, and self; attempting any and all personal and professional “experiments” in self-improvement. More than a decade later, he enjoys excellent new patient numbers and case acceptance, a solution oriented dental team; and most importantly, a meaningful and positive identity. He happily shares the failures and successes with dental and community groups throughout the country, always ending his presentations with practical, implementable, step-by-step ways to be better.
