The introduction of in-office conebeam CT scanners in combination with CT Guided dental implant software’s and instrumentation has opened new avenues for the accurate placement of dental implants according to a restoratively driven treatment plan. New digital dental technologies are advancing concepts of immediate loading and immediate restorations. This in turn has put additional demands on OMFS’s to understand the requirements of the restorative, prosthodontic, and dental laboratory team members. Ideal successful clinical results require knowledge and communication between OMFS’s, prosthodontists and restorative dentists, and laboratory technicians. This clinic will review the prosthodontic principles and requirements for implant restoration in common clinical scenarios. New digital dental technologies and the surgical and restorative technologies available for CT Guided implant placement will be discussed as well. Concepts of multi-disciplinary communication will be emphasized.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this presentation, participants should be able to:

  1. Describe how communication between dental disciplines leads to improved implant planning, surgical placement, restoration, patient outcomes, and long term relationships between clinicians.
  2. Describe accurate predictable implant placement based on the anatomy and the functional and esthetic needs of a restorative case. Using state-of-the-art technologies and a team approach to maximize predictable implant placement and prosthodontic restoration.
  3. Describe how new digital technologies and prosthodontic requirements will lead to improved implant placement which will maximize long term functional and esthetic outcomes for our patients.
