The Digital Revolution: Predictable Clinical Implementation
Julián Conejo, DDS, MSc
University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine
This lecture focuses on highly esthetic tooth and implant-supported restorations through the implementation of digital technologies. The main objective is to show how treatment time optimization and better clinical outcomes are possible with the implementation of digital tools from the diagnostic phase through facially driven mock-ups to the final ceramic restorations. Participants will receive updates in new methods to elaborate ideal tooth preparations to optimize marginal adaptation with CAD/CAM technologies. Long-term provisional restorations and their respective polishing protocols for optimal esthetics and soft tissue response will be discussed.
At the conclusion of this session, attendees should be able to:
- Follow step-by-step clinical protocols for tooth preparations and bonding optimization of full-ceramic CAD/CAM restorations with evidence-based concepts.
- Utilize new methods to elaborate ideal tooth preparations to optimize marginal adaptation with CAD/CAM technologies.
- Implement digital tools to optimize time and provide improved clinical outcomes.
