How can we make esthetic dentures when obtaining records is difficult, there may be no lower ridge, dry mouth, medical issues, dementia and communication difficulties and implants may not be an option? This presentation demonstrates how to make successful esthetic dentures on the older patient when such problems are present.
The older patient in need of dentures will have an increase in their ability to chew and enjoy their food. Re-establish face form, function and esthetics. Techniques are described that work when these issues are present that makes it easier and more predictable to achieve success and in less time.
