The applications include imaging, digital planning, template-guided implant placement, digital impressions with intraoral scanners and CAD/CAM prostheses. Digital planning software for treatment planning, digital impressions and 3-D printers are currently integrated with CAD/CAM technology for efficient treatment workflow.
This presentation will address the current scientific status and the clinical applications of digital technology in implant dentistry as well the benefits and limitations.
At the conclusion of this session, attendees should be able to:
1. Describe the various applications of digital technology in implant prosthodontics
2. Discuss the scientific evidence for the applications of digital technology in implant dentistry
3. Illustrate through clinical cases how digitally-planned, guided implant placement and digital impressions combined with CAD/CAM prostheses are integrated into an efficient digital workflow for fixed implant rehabilitation
4. Understand benefits and limitations of digital technology in clinical practice
