Who should attend? Dentists Robert Brenneise

Course Title: “Snap-on Smile: Today’s Multipurpose Restorative Appliance” Snap-on Smile is the ideal solution for solving a wide variety of short- and long-term clinical challenges. It serves both as a noninvasive restorative option and a diagnostic appliance. Applications include aesthetic provisionals for implant restorations, a vehicle for raising vertical dimension, for cosmetic removable partial dentures, and long-term smile enhancement. In addition, it can last for years; is reversible, and yet is affordable enough to be temporary. Snap-on Smile is an ideal option for patients who are unable to receive permanent improvements, such as crowns, veneers, and implants because they are medically compromised; their age precludes them from extensive treatments; or they are simply afraid to have extensive dental work done. This appliance has proven to be a terrific incentive for patients who are in need of but hesitant to commit to a more involved treatment. Research has shown that forty percent of patients who started treatment with Snap-on Smile transitioned into a more extensive restorative dentistry. Topics Covered: • Introduction • Patient care of the appliance • Applications • Certifying your practice • Send cases to the lab • Economic value • Inserting the appliance
