Program Purpose / Objectives

Prosthodontic Principles Essential for Successful Complex Reconstruction of Natural Teeth and Dental Implants

Oral rehabilitation demands a full understanding of the prosthodontic principles related to fixed reconstruction involving natural teeth as well as dental implants. After thorough diagnosis and data collection, a cogent treatment plan should be developed which brings the patient through all phases of therapy including elimination of acute disease, surgical procedures, management of the provisional stage, proper healing and maturation, and final fabrication and delivery of definitive restorations. Essential prosthodontic principles critical for success in the Implant-Assisted Removable Prosthesis will also be covered.

Learning Objectives:
  • How to begin a complex dental reconstruction
  • Understanding tooth position and occlusal plane in diagnosis and anticipated final restoration
  • Understanding vertical dimension and use of semi-adjustable articulators for rehabilitation cases
  • Evaluating pre-operative and proposed occlusal schemes in complex cases
  • Implant-Assisted Removable Prostheses
Conference Sessions generally take place on days at sea (as itinerary allows), giving you plenty of time to enjoy your meals, evenings and ports of call with your companion, family and friends.

Ports of Call

San Juan, Puerto Rico - In days of yore, the waters near Puerto Rico teemed with pirate ships commanded by the likes of Sir Francis Drake. Aye, they are long gone, but in their wake they have left an island of national treasures: La Casa Blanca, built in 1501 for the island's first governor, Ponce de Leon; the cobblestone streets of Old San Juan; the tropical rain forests of El Yunque.

Basseterre, St. Kitts - The island England zealously defended from Brimstone Hill, the "Gibraltar of the West Indies." In Basseterre, a mini-London, there's Piccadilly Circus to shop and a gingerbread version of Big Ben by which to check the hour.

At Sea - Cruising - Cruising

Kralendijk (Bonaire), Antilles - Kralendijk is the sleepy capital of Bonaire, an island in the Dutch Antilles. Kralendijk is lined with delightfully pastel stucco houses, in pinks, oranges and lime greens. Famous for its diving - the island is surrounded by a Marine Park - Bonaire also offers such treats as flamingos, hiking and the only barefoot casino in the Caribbean.

Oranjestad, Aruba - A Dutch jewel with a tropical touch. In Oranjestad, Aruba's capital, explore the colorful floating market and Nassaustraat, brimming with quaint shops. Head for the beach where water sports abound: snorkeling, rides on glass bottom boats and submarines. Or venture into the countryside to see the haunts of the huge green parakeet, the unique rock gardens of Casi Bari, the curious divi divi tree, forever bending in the tradewind breezes

Willemstad, Curacao - An isle of Dutch treats: gabled storybook houses, duty-free Delftware, the famous Curacao orange flavored liqueur
