Full-Arch Implant Restorations: Improving Patients’ Lives Over the Short and Long Term

CE- Full-Arch Implant Restorations: Improving Patients’ Lives Over the Short and Long Term
Launch Course

Course Objectives (1 CE Credit)

Paresh B. Patel, DDS

Fully edentulous patients face many challenges, such as discomfort, diminished chewing capability and low self-esteem.

The fixed full-arch implant restoration is a life-changing treatment option for these patients, restoring form and function to a degree that mimics natural dentition.

When sufficient primary stability is established, immediate provisionalization instantly addresses many of the problems associated with edentulism while establishing a template for the final restoration.

In this multimedia presentation, Dr. Paresh Patel illustrates the clinical advantages of this approach using a case example and straightforward parameters for success.

  • Short- and long-term benefits of immediate provisionalization
  • Immediate implant placement in full-arch extraction cases
  • Chairside fabrication of an immediate fixed denture
  • Basic diagnosis and treatment planning of full-arch implant cases
  • Proper implant positioning in extraction sites
  • Restorative workflow for the monolithic zirconia full-arch implant prosthesis
  • Refining prosthetic design with immediate dentures and PMMA provisionals
  • Patient benefits of fixed full-arch implant restorations


By providing the stability and function of a fixed prosthesis, the placement of implants to support a full-arch restoration represents the optimal treatment option for the fully edentulous patient. In many cases, a fixed temporary restoration can be delivered at the surgical appointment, providing instant relief for patients who suffer from compromised oral function and esthetics while setting the stage for a predictable final outcome that aligns with the patient’s precise expectations.
