The Department of Prosthodontics organised a CDE program at Saveetha Dental College on 17/8/2018 on the Trefoil Implant system by Nobel Biocare Ltd; The system is a novel therapeutic approach to manage completely edentulous situations in the lower arch with implant supported fixed prosthesis.

The lecture was delivered by Dr. Ratnadeep Patil, a very eminent Clinician and Implantologist. Esthetic challenges in upper anterior edentulous situations, management strategies for periimplantitis, bone defects and prosthetic modifications were discussed elaborately. The novel trefoil system was discussed in detail with respect to both surgical and prosthodontics interventionsfor management or prevention of the afore-mentioned situations. The concept of reverse engineering on planning the prosthesis was the key highlight of the technique.

The program was awarded with 3 credit points by the DCI and was attended by 71 delegates, both national and regional. The response for the program was robust and feedback was extremely positive concerning the technique.
