Full mouth rehabilitation utilizing dental implants has become a more popular treatment plan. The literature suggests that short- and long-term complications should be anticipated for this treatment solution. Complications can range from being minor and easily managed or can be catastrophic and potentially devastating. When is this treatment most appropriate? How do we communicate expectations with patients and how can we build strategy into our plan to manage failure more predictably?
• Gain understanding of when “All on X” is the most appropriate treatment plan and how to determine how many implants the situation requires.
• Examine what is necessary to increase success from a team communication and coordination standpoint.
• Gain insight into anticipating complications and how to manage and communicate them with patients: how can you plan for failure from the beginning?
• Increase awareness of recommended maintenance protocols and patient education following restoration.
