“Digital Solutions for Implant Prosthetics Aesthetics and CAD/CAM Techniques”

CAD/CAM technology has the advantage of reducing clinical chair-time and reducing laboratory costs. The accuracy of these techniques has improved to the point where they are now comparable to conventional techniques. This program reviews the current technology, which allows the fabrication of anterior and posterior crowns utilizing various digital intra-oral systems. In addition, these techniques can also be used to fabricate implant restorations. Digital acquisition impressions of implant and ceramic restorations are demonstrated. Utilizing a variety of intra-oral scanners, we can plan our guided surgeries, use digital wax-ups and finalize restorations using 100% digital work flow. In addition, working with CBCT scans we can analyze Occlusal Vertical Dimension (OVD) for our patients and transfer that information through to final Full Mouth Rehabilitation (FMR).

Learn:

  • about anterior and posterior implant crowns
  • CAD/CAM generated and designed implant abutments
  • CAD/CAM anterior provisional for ideal emergence
  • to utilize CAD/CAM crowns for restoring OVD in FMR case
