This course is sold out. Digital impressions of implant scan bodies simplify the implant treatment process while improving the patient experience. An intuitive chairside digital capture of teeth and scan bodies incorporating dentate and/or edentulous mouths can be imagined. What is scanned in real time at 10-plus times magnification on a flat-screen monitor can be viewed and manipulated. Virtual implant guides and/or treatment plans can be created and the data transferred to a restorative, surgical or laboratory partner. With the implementation of an intraoral scanner, the surgical team can provide consistent esthetic outcomes that patients expect and offer a great service to referrals while also encouraging incremental patient referrals. The iOS patient experience can differentiate a practitioner from others and give him or her access to laboratories that other referral sources may not have. CAD/CAM, a CBCT with iOS and/or 3D printing can be layered in, and digital workflows to procure surgical guides, implant abutments and/or restorations can be introduced. This hands-on course will allow surgeons to determine if an iOS strategy can become an important marketing tool for their practice and how to implement the strategy.
There will be a refreshment break from 3:00 p.m. - 3:30 p.m.
