Participants will be introduced to the concept of guided surgery and how this can be managed in an everyday practice environment to improve predictability and the likelihood of acceptable outcomes. The hands-on component of this course will encourage participants to utilize the software for the planning of implant placements for treatment with guided surgery.
The crown-down philosophy of implant restorative dentistry will be reviewed. The restorative program will focus on workflow, digital design and manufacturing options inclusive of dental materials. The hands-on restorative exercises will include digital impression taking, the management of digital data, and the transfer of digital dentistry to the lab. The technician will review CADCAM restorations, from customized abutments through a digital workflow to single tooth and full-arch rehabilitations.

Recent developments in digital technology are rapidly changing the way we approach planning and treating patients...See more with implant-supported restorations. Predictable outcomes are routinely derived through a coordinated effort between the restorative dentist, surgeon and technician. It is therefore imperative that the treatment team have common goals, knowledge of available technology and desire to incorporate this technology into the workflow to achieve optimal patient care and esthetic results.
