This course will discuss advanced applications of digital dentistry as it relates to dental implant planning and dental implant prostheses. Participants will explore several cases spanning an array of difficulty levels to better understand why utilizing computer-aided design (CAD) and digital implant planning software are integral parts of the overall implant experience. The tools to be discussed are advanced, but they share many similarities to the same software generally used to design crowns and capture dental radiographs. Participants will gain an elevated sense of how their community prosthodontist serves the interdisciplinary implant team as well as a foundation of implant planning knowledge.

Learning Objectives:

  • Explore a range of simple to advanced implant cases to develop a discussion surrounding materials, methods and protocols aimed at planning implant placement from a restorative perspective.
  • Discuss the anatomical and biomechanical parameters required for implant-supportedprostheses.
  • Better define the role of the prosthodontist and maxillofacial prosthodontist in your multidisciplinary dental treatment team.
