CBCT Implant Planning—Digital Solutions from a Laboratory Perspective
(Event: 2015 Northeast and Southern Districts Meeting)

Apr 24, 2015 8:10am - Apr 24, 2015 9:59am
Session Type: Main Podium
Track: AGD Code 615


This course will give insight into the CBCT planning process. It will discuss how implant planning and implant placement positions can affect the final esthetic and functional outcome of the prosthesis. The presentation will show how digitally scanned arches can be incorporated into software for use in planning and guide construction. Demonstrations will include how implant restorations are designed in software to produce crowns, bridges, bars, provisionals and abutments.

Upon completion of this course, participants should be able to:

• Understand what is needed to do virtual implant planning and produce an implant surgical guide and have a basic understanding of the planning process
• Identify the digital possibilities for making implant prosthetics using current modalities for scanning and exporting data to the lab
