Building virtual patients for predictable outcomes of complex full mouth implant rehabilitation
An ACDE Series Webinar

Course Description:

Full-arch implant-supported fixed prosthesis is one of the most advocated treatment options for patients with failing dentition. This treatment requires coordinating a thorough prosthetic and surgical plan. Esthetic, occlusal, and biological considerations must be integrated into the treatment plan. It is one of the most challenging dental procedures. Luckily, with the newest technology of face scans, virtual patients, virtual articulators, and computer-assisted implant surgery with the stackable guide, a full arch immediate implant placement, and loading case can be planned and executed seamlessly with predictable outcomes. This lecture will cover the key issues related to this full digital workflow.

Learning Objectives:

At the conclusion of this course, participants will be able to:

  1. Identify the equipment and software required for a virtual patient workflow.
  2. Understand the virtual patient workflow process.
  3. Recognize the components of a stackable guide.
  4. Demonstrate how to accurately register CR (Centric Relation) and VDO (Vertical Dimension of Occlusion) in a virtual patient
