DIGITAL WORKFLOW FOR FULL-ARCH IMPLANT DENTISTRY 2.0
The progressive shift towards implementing digitally driven technology in reconstructive dentistry is obvious. Compared to conventional methods, the ultimate goal of digital technologies is to improve the quality and capabilities in examination, diagnosis, and treatment of the dental patient. It is still questionable, however, whether such digital tools facilitate improved accuracy in data acquisition and assessment, superior efficacy in treatment planning, and more controlled and faster manufacturing process. This presentation will provide an overview about disruptive technologies in implant rehabilitation and discuss different possibilities and advantages when using innovative digital workflows. Focus will be given to new workflows facilitating synergy between surgical, functional and esthetic components in full-arch cases.
OBJECTIVES: At the completion of the course, participants will be able to:
Understand the different components of the digital workflow
Recognize the advantages and bottlenecks of the digital workflow in full-arch cases
See how the quality and predictability of treatment can improved by digital tools
