Full-arch CBCT Guided Surgery and Immediate Restoration – Smile in a Box

New CoursePart of the Digital Workflow Concentration

Course Description

The rehabilitation of the terminal dentition or completely edentulous arch with dental implants and a fixedsolution has become a focal point in today’s implant practice. With patient awareness increasing from radio,TV and social media; prompting them to seek treatment, clinicians find themselves faced with the need to offer these services. In addition, evidence-based treatment protocols promote the social, functional andesthetic benefits of dental implant supported restorations, and with the increased integration of digital technology, this process has become streamlined for the treatment team. With the complexity that is often faced in these clinical situations (bone reduction, implant positioning, template design and fabrication,abutment selection, provisional fabrication and indexing), technology that is currently available, run by an extended member of the treatment team allows for these steps to be pre-planned and fabricated to ease the burden on the surgeon and restorative dentist at the time of surgery.

This two-day course will focus on the technology utilized to plan and order (“smile in a box”) CBCT guided templates and provisional restorations for treatment of the full-arch patient. Participants will be given presentations that demonstrate the step-wise patient evaluation and planning process followed by hands-on sessions executing the principles taught. Participants will also experience the use of the co-DiagnostiX software to import a DICOM file and merge it with a dual scan prosthesis. In addition, techniques to segment,plan implant placement and abutment selection will be covered. On a patient simulated model, the participant will use CBCT-generated stackable templates in the placement of four dental implants followed by abutment placement and indexing of a pre-fabricated interim restoration. All course participants will keep the hands-on model as a valuable patient education tool to be used in their practice.
