The Complete Full Arch Implant Digital Workflow Utilizing The Dental Avatar Concept
New trends and techniques in the dental field are emerging at a rapid pace. Intra-oral, desktop, and facial scanning along with 3D printing have made digital dentistry effective and efficient. Concepts such as “the dental avatar” – where patients are recreated digitally – are being embraced to improve the effectiveness of laboratory communication and dental treatment.
The full arch All on X concept has continued to dominate the dental implant realm. Concepts such as hard/soft tissue preservation have been abandoned for gross bone reduction and prosthetic tissue replacement. Technologies such as pre- and post-op facial, intraoral, and desktop scanning will be reviewed to reduce chair time for prosthetically-driven implant planning and simplified 2-3 visit finalization.
This lecture/workshop will discuss how to implement the tools and techniques with seamless integration to aid in surgical planning and restorations necessary to preserve and enhance hard/soft tissue for predictable FP1-FP3 restorations from single tooth to full arch restorations.
