This course will encompass the utilization of 3D-CAD/CAM guided implantologyfrom the diagnostic phase to the planning and the  execution phases focusing on safety and precision in order to produce functionally and esthetically stable clinical outcomes. It is designed for clinicians who want to take their clinical and technological skills to the highest level with the most modern technology available. Prosthetic-driven planning, CBCT imaging, and 3D implant planning software will be discussed to familiarize attendees with the computer planning portion of the process. Guided key-free surgical techniques will be discussed, allowing clinicians to work comfortably anywhere in the mouth in a less cumbersome manner. The hands-on portion of the course will utilize a new and innovative conical connection implant, and will allow attendees to use patient specific surgical guide with a corresponding surgical kit to place implants in a fully-guided procedure and also learn how to immediately temporize an implant. Complications and management related to implant reconstructions will also be discussed.

Learning Objectives:

At completion of this presentation, participants should be able to:


1. Appreciate and understand the value of safety and precision in dental implantology utilizing face scanner, CBCT, and optical
scanner from the diagnosis and treatment planning phase to the final surgical and prosthetic execution phase
2. Propose treatment plan from a perio-prosthodontic perspective using 3D-CAD/CAM technology in order to provide an ideal,
functional, and esthetic outcome
3. Describe Stage I, II and III surgical and prosthodontic protocols
4. Perform fully-guided surgery (key-free) and temporize an implant on a model
5. Recognize the role of implant provisionals in creating and maintaining soft tissue contours for implant esthetics
6. Understand the key determining factors affecting long-term stability
