Hands-On Half-Day Workshop – Overdenture Attachment Systems

Limited to 30 participants


Suggested Audience: Dentists, Lab Technicians

A hands-on simulation of actual dental procedures

Course Description:

The participants will work on a typodont model with two roots placed in the anterior mandible. Two root attachment systems will be discussed and utilized. Each root is prepared separately using the proprietary reamers and countersink armamantariam. The attachment is then cemented into the root. The process of how the male or female attachment is picked up in bisacryl is performed for each of the attachment system. The corresponding male or female retentive element located in the overdenture is checked for retention on the model after trimming and finishing. This element is then changed and a new one is replaced, simulating what is done chairside by the dentist.

The workshop will include the demonstration of appropriate block out materials. A hands-on approach will be used throughout the session as well as a PowerPoint presentation.

Course Objectives:

Upon successful completion of this course, attendees will:

  • Prepare roots and cement direct overdenture attachments
  • Cure male attachments with metal housings in an overdenture
  • Replace worn male attachment with another male attachment
  • Parallel attachments demonstrating angulated abutment teeth
  • Learn how to blockout a Hader bar for chairside pick-up

At the conclusion of the session, participants will experience increased confidence when placing attachments chairside, a familiarity of attachment dynamics, and the ability to include attachments in the treatment planning of  removable prosthetics.        

It is suggested that participants bring their magnifying loupes as well as a laboratory coat.
