PROSTHODONTIC CONSIDERATIONS FOR PEDIATRIC AND YOUNG ADULT PATIENTS
The course will focus on assessing and treating the pediatric and young adult patients with congenital and acquired dental conditions with prosthodontic needs for missing teeth and soft-tissue replacement. Special considerations and challenges for prosthodontic treatment in growing patients will be discussed. Clinical cases of congenital and acquired dental and craniofacial anomalies with conventional and modern treatment modalities including digital dentistry will be presented. Included in this course will be a review of the literature on dental implants in young patients in regard to ideal timing, multidisciplinary approach, and complications.
After this course attendees will be able to:
- Identify unique considerations for prosthodontic treatment for pediatric, adolescent patients, and young adults with special needs
- Review craniofacial development and assess appropriate timing of dental implants for pediatric patients
- Understand congenital conditions with dental implications and assess prosthodontic treatment options and quality of life improvement
