Digital Implant Dentistry Course

The digital revolution in dentistry is progressing rapidly. The translation of digital technologies into the clinical field of implant dentistry has resulted in new treatment modalities at the surgical and restorative level. This three-day course is designed for clinicians and dental teams who wish to efficiently incorporate the digital workflow into their implant practices. This course will focus on the application of digital technologies in surgical and restorative implant dentistry, including digital scanners, cone beam CT scanners and 3D printers, and how the merging of CAD/CAM and CBCT data will culminate in a guided implant surgery technique and digital implant restorative techniques that can ultimately lead to an increased predictability, efficiency, and profitability in dental implant therapy. The time is now to understand how to implement digital implant dentistry into your practice.
