Use of Technology for Improved Implant Use in the OMS Practice


This session will review the process of using digital imaging for the process of initial impression of the implant, temporary or final abutment, milling of the abutment to substitute for stock or cast abutments, and to mill the final restoration.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this symposium, participants will be able to:

  1. Discuss how the OMS can use intraoral imaging to facilitate the design and fabrication of the final abutment and clinical crown.
  2. Identify the laboratory methods that are used from digital imaging to final crown delivery, without the need for impression material.
  3. Describe the application of the digital, virtual environment to provide patients efficient and time effective implant treatment.
