Synergy: The Single-Tooth Workflow: A Hands-On Experience

New CoursePart of the Digital Workflow Concentration


Course Description

The maturation of the field of implant dentistry with regards to digital technology and materials has improved treatment efficiency as well as both esthetic and functional predictability. The utilization of a comprehensive and synergistic digital workflow, based on sound evidence-based principles and team communication, is one way to satisfy these demands. In a single-tooth replacement situation, the synergy workflow incorporates digital acquisition of patient data, a virtual wax-up, pre-surgical planning of the implant position followed by template and provisional fabrication through an additive or milling process, prior to initiating the surgical procedure.

This two-day course will focus on the technology utilized in the synergy workflow through lectures and hands-on sessions. Participants will be given presentations that demonstrate the step-wise process followed by hands-on sessions executing the principles taught. Participants will experience the use of an intra-oral scanner, perform a digital wax-up, import a DICOM file and merge it with the wax-up, plan implant placement, design and print a surgical guide and mill a provisional. On a patient simulated model, the participant will place an implant with fully-guided surgery and deliver the implant supported provisional. All course participants will keep the hands-on model as a valuable patient education tool to be used in their practice.
