Wednesday April 22, 2020 – POSTPONED
Holiday Inn Burlington – 3063 S Service R.
Venue: The Holiday Inn Burlington, 3063 South Service Rd., Burlington, ON, CA, L7N 3E9
Speakers: Dr. Patrick Pedlar and Dr. Oliver Pin-Harry – Burlington’s Prosthodontists
A Potpourri of Prosthodontic Cases: From Single Tooth to Full Mouth Reconstructions
The goal of any Prosthodontic treatment is to emulate the function and beauty of the healthy natural dentition. Patients may present with the challenge of a single missing or compromised anterior tooth that requires seamless restoration that is indistinguishable from the adjacent teeth or a terminal hopeless dentition requiring full mouth reconstruction on implants. This lecture will provide a broad description of what a Prosthodontist can do for your patients using an enriched clinical format of case reports.
