Dental implants have been used in dentistry for more than 50 years. Long-term success of dental implants depends largely on the implant placement as well as the prosthetic restoration. Combining the 3D CBCT images with the functional data from CAD CAM Chairside systems enables the clinician to plan and place implants prosthetically driven. This course will help to understand this digital workflow better with tips and tricks to create higher aesthetic results in implant dentistry.

Learning Objectives:

  • To understand the importance of Integration and virtual planning
  • To understand the benefits of In-house Prosthetically driven implant placement
  • Difference between guided and non-guided implant surgery
  • Restorative options and Tips and Tricks on custom-made implant restorations
