Demystifying the fully digital implant patient
Workshops Program
Wednesday 1st May
1:30 PM - 4:30 PM

As digital technology becomes more pervasive in everyday practice, there is an increased demand to apply it in ever more expanding clinical situations. This presentation will help demystify the full application of digital technology in the implant patient from initial diagnostics to the final restoration with digital workflows presented in all phases of surgical and restorative implant dentistry.

Learning Outcomes:

  • How to apply digital treatment protocols in daily practice including the use of an intraoral scanner, design and planning software, and milling and printing modalities.
  • Learn how guided implant surgery with pre-made prosthetics can simplify treatment.
  • Become familiar with digital workflows encompassing both simple and complicated cases.
