Lectures and live demonstration on a patient by Finlay Sutton

I absolutely love providing partial dentures for my patients as they are often life changing. I will show you how to make partial dentures function like “removable bridges” and prove that they are viable alternatives to dental implant supported restorations. In addition, I will demonstrate that well designed and made partial dentures can have superior aesthetics over fixed restorations. I will share with you the techniques and methods Rowan Garstang (my dental technician) and I use to achieve predictable results with removable prosthodontics.

We provide a special form of partial denture design which is based around a solid chassis (major connector) which splints mobile teeth protecting the periodontium of the remaining natural teeth as much as possible. I will show you how I design and manage all combinations of missing teeth. As well as discussing tooth positioning and partial denture occlusion I will show you how I make accurate impressions and record the occlusion, using gothic arch tracing (in a live demonstration on a patient) enabling Rowan to make accurately fitting partial dentures.

This day is aimed at dentists, 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.
