Lectures and live demonstration on a patient by Finlay Sutton

I run the Implant Over-Denture Masterclass on Friday 22nd November 2024. You may wish to come for two days and do my Partial Denture Masterclass the day before on Thursday 21st May 2024.

I share with you the techniques and methods Rowan Garstang (my dental technician) and I use to achieve predictable results with implant supported complete dentures and partial dentures. This is a distillation of 22 years experience working together providing these restorations. We have made many mistakes and learned many lessons with these types of restorations and I want to share our solutions with you. I present the steps involved in planning, implant positioning (not including the surgical placement of implants), attachments we use, impression making, occlusal registration, tooth positioning for optimum aesthetics and internal strengthening of the prostheses. I also discuss my approach to consent and the importance of managing our patients’ expectations with these types of restoration.

This day is aimed at dentists, specialist prosthodontists, clinical dental technicians and dental technicians consisting of a live patient demonstration and lectures abundantly illustrated with step by step photographs and videos of all procedures.

It will improve the way I care for patients by offering more appropriate treatment.

M Heilbron - Specialist in Prosthodontics, Cheltenham

I can now give my patients the dentures they need with the knowledge I gained.

A Walles - GDP

Provide better dentures. Achieve better consent approaches for the patient. Offer dentures in more confidence.

V Gianoulis - GDP

I feel much more confident with being able to provide immediate dentures predictably which is something I have found difficult since graduating!

J Sasikumar - GDP

I recommend Finlay’s courses to any dentist who wants to be able to provide good looking, well fitting dentures for their patients. I used to hate making dentures, now its my favourite part of my job!
