Prosthetically Driven and Guided Implant Placement and Restoration: Analog to Digital Workflow
Boston, MA • June 16, 2018 • 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Creating the proper emergence profile and soft-tissue adaptation is paramount to implant and restoration success, both esthetically and functionally. Assessing bone dimension, bone quality and proper implant angulation, utilizing CBCT technology, greatly improves the successful integration and esthetic outcome of implant placement.

This course will offer participants the opportunity to learn how to incorporate the most up-to-date guided surgery technology from the unique perspectives of both the restorative dentist and the oral surgeon. Participants will learn how to incorporate 3D technology to develop a prosthetically-driven treatment plan, along with implant site staging protocol, in order to plan, place, and restore implants in a precise, repeatable, and predictable method.
