Course Description

Static computer guided implant surgery and the Dynamic Navigation introduced a novel minimally invasive concept in the treatment of total edentulous and terminal dentition patients. New digital algorithms allow the daily use of this disruptive innovations with a simple and predictable workflow. The “smiling scan” comprhensive diagnosis and treatment plan integrating all the major sources of digital informations can replace the real patient to conduct a facially driven, prosthetically and soft tissue driven implant positioning. The novel DASS technique to sculpture the bone and soft tissue and achieve a scalloped interface for pink free restoration will be presented, as well us up to 15 years complete arch zirconia based prosthetic solutions.

Learning Objectives

  • Understanding the benefits and disadvantages of using digitally guided surgery and prosthetics techniques
  • Gain knowledge on the different clinical indications of static guided surgery and dynamic navigation implant surgery
  • Feel confidence and being able to differentiate when immediate loading is feasible
  • Managing the soft tissue interface for pink free zirconia based complete arch restorations with a digitally assisted protocol.
