Minimally Invasive Dentistry – from Analogue to Digital

Course Description

The analogue treatment concepts in minimally invasive dentistry are well established. Digital tools are increasingly supporting us today in dental photography, treatment planning, smile design, intra-oral impressions and the manufacture of dental ceramics. They continue to simplify communication with our patients and make our daily work easier. However, the analogous knowledge and skills, such as the basics of treatment planning, should not be forgotten.This lecture compares analogue and digital treatment concepts in minimally invasive dentistry.

Learning Objectives
  • Understand the basics of aesthetic and functional treatment planning and benefits of minimally invasive dentistry
  • Understand the pathways of the different workflows in analog and digital dentistry and their value and differences
  • Understand the advantages and limits of digital treatment methods and tools in daily dental practice
  • Understand the positive effect of digital tools have on effective communication with our patients, dental technicians and the entire treatment team
