Course DescriptionDigital technology has significantly changed the way we practice dentistry. The advancement of intraoral scanners and dental materials in recent years has enabled clinicians to offer a wide range of prosthodontic treatments using digital workflows. Despite these advancements, comprehensive treatments involving recovery of vertical dimension of occlusion are not routinely followed due their inherent complexity. This presentation will demonstrate the management of comprehensive rehabilitations performed using a fully digital approach, highlighting the critical diagnostic and treatment planning phase.

Learning Objectives

  • Demonstrate the use of intra oral scanners and monolithic materials in prosthodontics and implant dentistry
  • Map digital workflow and the oral scanning sequence of treatment flow.
  • Provide an overview of the digital workflow required in comprehensive fixed reconstructions
