The journey for the patient undergoing full arch implant treatment can bring great rewards but can also be extremely intimidating. Now more than ever, we need to hone and modify our skills to help guide our patients to make the correct choice for themselves and help them through this stressful time. Understanding the full scope of what is possible and harnessing newer technologies for our patient is vital as we restore their function and bring them back to more healthy function in an unhealthy time! As a practitioner it is our responsibility to understand all options available and deliver the treatment that the patient needs and selects. This program will cover all aspects of full arch treatment including patient acquisition, communication techniques leading to case acceptance, and clinical steps for fixed and removable immediate load protocols.
