How to Incorporate Full-Arch Fixed Prosthesis Supported by Dental Implants in Your Clinic

Course Highlight:
There are times when devastating conditions in an oral cavity present themselves. The treatment duration,
cost, and need of extensive bone augmentation needed in conventional implant-related treatment
for replacement of edentulous or-soon-to-be edentulous patients possess a great challenge for both the patient and the clinician.

The All-on-4® Concept introduced by Dr. Malo in 2003 is a well-known rehabilitation concept for
edentulous jaws that provide immediate usage, to overcome the function and esthetic challenge in
such conditions. Hong Kong was to be a pioneer to be the first to develop a protocol for immediately
loading implants with fixed provisional prosthesis, namely the Hong Kong Bridge Protocol by Dr
James Chow’s team in 2001.

Combining the well tested surface technique and advancement in implant marco design and
connection, the Straumann® ProArch treatment concepts may give an edge to such reconstructions
to be done predictably achievable and maintaining long-term success onwards.

In this lecture, we give a walk-through of the procedures and what is needed for the implementation of the such protocol in a general practice setting.

Learning objectives:
1. Indication of Implant Placement Full Arch Fixed Prosthesis
2. Workflow of surgical and prosthetic procedures in the practice
3. Selected showcases
4. Maintenance and complication management
