Course Description

In part 1 of this two-session series, Dr. El Gendy will cover the following involving digital dentistry and removable prothesis.

The conventional way of fabricating complete removable prosthesis has not changed in the past 50 years. The process involves multiple clinical appointments.  Each appointment requires considerable amount of time and material used both clinically and in the laboratory. This means the whole process is subject to human processing errors, inaccuracies, and further increased time and cost.

Digitally fabricated complete removable prosthesis will revolutionize the way dentists are treating completely edentulous patients. In the past few years, digitally designed and manufactured Complete Removable Prosthesis have improved significantly due to advancement in scanning, designing, and manufacturing.  Part 2 will be held on October 15, 2024 via live webinar.
