About the program

This seminar will provide a comprehensive overview of intraoral scanning with specific emphasis on its use with implant dentistry. Clinical and laboratory protocols will be reviewed that focus on prosthetically driven processes that create precise and predictable treatment outcomes. A review and comparison of the conventional implant restorative workflow to one that implements digital technology will be explored. Please join us to learn what your future can hold with the flexibility and simplicity of intraoral scanning.

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

  • Understand how digital technology allows the restorative doctor to receive a custom CAD/CAM abutment and final crown without having to take an impression or make a temporary.
  • Understand how the use of an intraoral scanner in conjunction with a scan body can streamline and simplify the implant restorative workflow.
  • Familiarize yourself with the different scanners which are currently on the market and be able to assess which one may be the best fit for your practice.
  • Discuss how implementing digital technology as part of your restorative technique can decrease patient visits and reduce chairtime.
