Dental disease and dental infection have been linked to several systemic disease conditions and processes. In this course, these links will be explained and discussed along with treatment options for patients wishing to treat dental conditions and minimize the risk for adverse systemic consequences. With over 35 million people who suffer from edentulism or struggle with dentures, there are millions more that are on the path to edentulism and grapple with chronic dental issues. In the dental and medical community, there are unique opportunities to improve the quality of life of these patients by collaborating in the restoration and maintenance of their appearance, function, confidence and health with modern treatment options. This course will review patient communication, and emphasize full-arch treatment as a proposed solution. This course welcomes dental clinicians, physicians, and hygienists who wish to know more about innovative treatment options for the edentulous, expand their diagnostic and treatment planning skills, and learn more about the opportunities to collaborate to change patients? lives.
