Prosthetic space is the three-dimensional space within the oral cavity that includes space for the ideal prosthesis and its associated prosthetic components.

Analysis of this space is the fundamental and most critical aspect in treatment planning for any type of implant-supported prosthesis (removable or fixed). The amount of prosthetic space needed, is dictated by the design of the prosthesis, type of implant system and choice of prosthetic components. It is the responsibility of the restoring dentist to analyze the availability of this space and the responsibility of the surgical dentist to create this space prior to implant placement. Failure to provide adequate prosthetic space can result in detrimental treatment outcomes, which may even require removal of implants and re-treatment.

This course is designed for Restoring dentists, Oral surgeons and Periodontists.

Participants will learn:

  • To educate about the importance of prosthetic space prior to referring patients for placement of implants for overdentures or hybrid prosthesis.
  • To explain various components of prosthetic space based on different designs and prosthetic components for implant dentures.
  • Step by step method of prosthetic space analysis.
  • Clinical cases showing surgical and prosthodontic consequences of ignoring prosthetic space requirements
