Compromised Edentulous Patients

Online Course
Available to purchase on demand on Tech Talk
3.5 Hours / £199

We've all done it, you can't deny it. Sat at your bench, doing job after job, detached from patients. Applying the same principles to each model, setting up teeth the exact same way. Many technicians, due to the nature of the job, forget about that human being on the other end of the impression. This is why CEP exists. This webinar dives deep into edentulous patients and explains why certain characteristics can change the way we do something, focusing on anatomy, medical history and treatment plans. What medications can cause a patient to have dry mouth, therefore limited suction? What can you do technically to achieve a good result in patients with fibrous tissue? 

All of these questions are discussed, and alternative options are suggested, using published research to support it. Aside from this, a full case study of a complete set on a patient with mandibular tori is presented, clinically and technically. The knowledge I learned from this content gave me confidence to speak up of my technical abilities and developed an increase in professional respect. It gave me new skills to complete individual, personalised cases, allowing me to go on to teach other technicians. This webinar helped me in every area of removable prosthetics and it will benefit you greatly too. 


  • To improve theoretical and practical knowledge and skills in relation to compromised edentulous patients during denture treatment, as well as enhance work for the benefit of my laboratory, clinicians, and patients.
  • Update my knowledge on facial anatomy, intra-oral anatomy, and geriatric dentistry, using evidence-based research to understand the demographic our industry aids, advancing our perceptions and abilities.
  • Focusing on technical skills, obtain new techniques that can be modified for holistic treatment planning, using case studies to present this.

Aims and Objectives:

  • Discuss common problems surrounding complete denture treatment and consider multiple solutions, accounting for the diversity of patient’s needs.
  • Understand how medical conditions and anatomical abnormalities may affect denture treatment and gather available options for problems these may cause
  • Explore, in depth, edentulous case studies containing torus mandibularis, atrophic ridges and fibrous tissues

And as a gift to you, you also receive 30 days FREE into Tech Talk when you sign up where you can re-watch at your own leisure and get involved in the rest of the Dental Technology community! Check out the Tech Talk tab for more information.





" I enjoyed this course. I have learned a lot as I am somewhat recently began my career in removable prosthetics. I have been able to apply what I have learned in the course already. I look forward to future courses."




"This course opened my eyes to all the different type of cases you can get and how to solve them. I learned a lot, thank you Beth"
