Being good at removable prosthodontics is directly relevant to fixed implant prosthodontics

All the of the principles required for producing aesthetically superb complete dentures apply equally to large scale fixed dental implant restorations. In edentulous patients, it is considered essential in making full arch implant-stabilised fixed restorations, to carry out a full three-dimensional prototype ‘dress rehearsal’ with complete dentures. Only then can the positioning of implants be planned, and surgical guides made.


This has the further advantage that in some cases the patient may be happy to settle for good removable dentures and be saved the considerable effort and expense of implants, etc.
