University of Washington

As digital technology has provided more efficient treatment protocols, fundamental knowledge of analog implant principles is still imperative for successful treatment outcomes. This presentation will highlight the restorative aspects of implant dentistry, with an overview on traditional principles, while implementing digital workflows for treatment planning, design, and manufacturing processes. The focus will be on using intraoral scanning for capturing the definitive impression for complete arch implant therapy, with a disruptive and innovative technique and workflow. A case will be thoroughly examined in depth, demonstrating how a contemporary dental practice may implement this workflow for restoring the definitive complete arch implant supported prostheses.

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

  • Express a comprehensive understanding of the evolution of digital technology with complete arch treatment.
  • Recognize how to continue to adapt to the current and ever-evolving workflows.
  • Review an A-Z workflow for the planning, converting, and restoring a complete arch case using modern digital technology.
