Implant Treatment Planning in the 4th Dimension: CBCT, Digital Workflow, and Guided Implant Surgery
Omaid K. Ahmad, BDS, MDentSc, FACP
Green Bay, WI
The integration of Cone Beam Computed Tomography for implant treatment planning is considered a standard of care. In a modern prosthodontic office, it is utilized as the first diagnostic tool for most complex cases. Sophisticated implant planning software help us create a prosthetically driven plan in the virtual world. This results in a modified and effective clinical workflow. We can utilize digital planning to increase the case acceptance rate. These plans could be shared digitally with the surgeon and the dental laboratory preceding any surgical intervention. Digital technology enables us to fabricate bone reduction guide, surgical guide, and prosthesis prior to surgery. We can reduce the chairside time and achieve a more accurate and predictable outcome.
At the conclusion of this session, attendees should be able to:
- Express the basics of Cone Beam CT and interpretate how it is utilized in implant treatment planning.
- Identify different types of digital workflows in implant treatment planning.
- Assess various guided surgery options ranging from static to dynamic guided solutions.
