Martin Wanendeya, BDS, DipImpDent RCS (Eng)

Thursday, Nov. 3
3:00 – 4:00 p.m. CT

The introduction of intraoral scans and new digital technology over the years has brought much change. One subject that is often debated is the use of intraoral scans for full-arch implant restorations. The volume of research in digital dentistry is increasing exponentially and can be confusing. This presentation will review current techniques and research and provide insight into the current state of analogue vs. digital for full-arch restorations

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

  • Justify the advantages of using digital dentistry to plan and place full-arch implants.
  • Recognize the benefits to the patient, lab, and dentist in incorporating digital workflows in practice.
  • Identify possible current and future workflows for full-arch implant dentistry by analyzing the current literature.
