How do you remove a full-arch implant-supported prosthesis?

Aug. 2, 2021
Dr. Scott Froum gives you a sneak peek at what you’ll learn during this year's Perio-Implant Advisory Symposium about dental implant complications and how to handle them.

Some of the literature shows that removal of an implant prosthesis should be done every three to 12 months for debridement; other studies suggest that removal should only be done in case of disease or material failure.

This year at the Second Annual Perio-Implant Advisory Symposium, October 14–15 in Scottsdale, Arizona, we will review in detail the rationale and clinical approach to removal of the full-arch implant prosthesis. We’re offering a hands-on how-to demonstration, and you’ll be given practice so you can confidently remove full-arch prostheses in your dental implant practice.

For an idea of what you can expect, please see this brief review by Dr. Clark Brinton, one of the lecturers and instructors at the symposium.

We look forward to seeing you in Scottsdale!
