Title: The Overdenture: Haven or Honey Trap
Synopsis: Since the mid 19th century some 3,000 publications have attested to the merits of overdentures. The advent of osseointegration techniques has tipped the therapeutic balance further still as it is perceived that titanium root analogues are less vulnerable than their natural counterparts. This presentation will highlight overdenture applications today mindful of the pitfalls awaiting the unwary.
1. To highlight the rightful place of overdentures in the prosthodontist's armamentarium.
2. To warn of common overdenture pitfalls.
3. To provide clinical guidance with overdenture construction.
