Third FOR digital textbook released: Implant Overdentures, from Diagnosis to Maintenance

The Foundation for Oral Rehabilitation has recently published its third digital textbook – Implant Overdentures, from Diagnosis to Maintenance – which delves into all aspects of implant overdenture treatment in a highly didactic manner.

Despite attempts from both international organizations and private institutions to improve oral health status globally, complete edentulism continues to be a prevalent condition. Starting with a discussion on how this disorder affects patient quality of life, this digital textbook provides guidelines and tools for each step of treatment. All recommendations are based on both scientific literature and the authors’ extensive experience, and are geared towards successful treatment outcomes.
