Digital Diagnosis and Prosthetic Planning to Enhance Guided Surgery
Neil Starr, DDS
Upon completion of this presentation, participants should be able to: 1) discuss how to plan for more precise implant surgical guides by merging data sets of diagnostic waxups, digital waxups or provisional restorations with CBCT data; 2) design a coordinated clinical approach to comprehensive implant treatment planning, utilizing digitally designed surgical guides; and 3) explain the value of digital prosthetic planning and its benefits for improving implant guided surgery.
4:00 - 4:30 pm
Scan, Plan, Mill, Restore: Putting It All Together
Farhad Boltchi, DMD, MS
Upon completion of this presentation, participants should be able to: 1) demonstrate the benefits of a digital implant dentistry workflow; 2) describe the advantages of guided implant surgery over current freehand techniques; and 3) outline a fully integrated digital workflow including digital implant planning, digital surgical guide fabrication, digital impressions via intraoral scanning, and digital fabrication of CAD/CAM implant restorations.
4:30 - 5:00 pm
Comparison of Dynamic and Static Guidance for Implant Surgery
Michael Block, DMD
Upon completion of this presentation, participants should be able to: 1) discuss the method of dynamic navigation; 2) explain the evidence base for accuracy and precision; and 3) descibe the difference between dynamic and static navigation.
