Digital Implant Planning and Execution: from Simple to Complex


Tuesday, October 26
7:45 – 8:15 p.m. CT
Digital Implant Planning and Execution: from Simple to Complex
Mark Ludlow, DMD, MS
University of Utah

As digital technology becomes more pervasive in everyday practice, there is an increased demand to apply it in ever more expanding clinical situations. This presentation will explore the full application of digital technology in the implant patient from initial diagnostics to the final restoration and will innumerate the planning principles involved in achieving both surgical and prosthetic success. We will explore the application of these principles in a myriad of cases beginning with the simple anterior implant case and progressing in complexity through the full arch fully-digital fixed implant patient.

At the conclusion of this session, attendees should be able to:

  • Distinguish the planning principles for single tooth implant cases.
  • Illustrate the myriad of digital modalities in both the surgical and prosthetic applications.
  • Gain the ability to predictably implement and execute digital implant treatment plans in everyday clinical practice.
