AM – Can I Ask a Question About Implants?
Having restored subperiosteal, transmandibular, blades and all forms of endosseous implants over the past 25 years, Dr Rouse has created a lecture where many unanswered questions can be answered…”bar or attachment”,“single crowns or multi-unit”, “prefabricated or custom abutment”, “cement or screw retained”, “hybrid or overdenture”, etc.,etc.,etc. While it is intuitive that a single implant cannot be appropriate for every case, implant prosthodontics has become one size fits all. Each implant design has inherent prosthetic benefits and limitations. This lecture classifies the implant systems based on the prosthetic connection and discusses case types best served by each design.

PM – Global Diagnosis and Sleep Prosthodontics: Blending the How and the Why
The most difficult cases in dentistry involve worn and/or fractured teeth. With wear comes a change in the dentoalveolar complex and the tooth. This course provides both a systematic approach to the interdisciplinary diagnosis and sequential treatment of these complex cases and a unique insight into the triggering factors leading to the damage. Dr Rouse will present a diagnostic method based on the concept of “global” diagnosis. The guidelines will be distilled into the “Five Questions” required to diagnose and provide interdisciplinary treatment of the worn smile. He will expand the lecture beyond the traditional “How To” providing a provocative perspective on the “Why” questions concerning facial form, tooth wear, lip mobility, and occlusal relationships. This evidence-based analysis argues that airway maintenance elicits the confounding challenges that the Global Diagnosis highlights.
