Digital Workflow for CAD/CAM One-Day Dentistry
Sompop Bencharit, DDS, MS, PhD, FACP
Virginia Commonwealth University

Recent advances in intraoral scanning, prosthetic software, and in-office milling technologies allow clinicians to make digital impressions as well as design and fabricate single unit fixed dental prostheses in their office. This presentation reviews the current technology, in particular the intraoral scanners as well as the digital workflow essential for CAD/CAM one-day dentistry. We also discuss indications/contraindications for CAD/CAM one-day dentistry, an ideal digital dentistry team, and necessary equipment and setups.

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

  • Comprehend, analyze, and critique appropriate workflow for CAD/CAM one-day dentistry.
  • Explain and extrapolate indications and contraindications for CAD/CAM one-day dentistry.
  • Integrate knowledge of current technologies and necessary staff members for CAD/CAM one-day dentistry.

Wednesday, June 16, 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. CT
Practical Occlusal Concepts for Routine Clinical Practice
Baldwin W. Marchack, DDS
Pasadena, CA

The question of whether excessive occlusal forces in implant restorations cause crestal bone loss continues to be a topic for debate among dental professionals. What constitutes implant overload? What is the ideal occlusal scheme for implants? How should we confirm the occlusion when we deliver implant restorations? Should the occlusion on removable implant assisted overdentures be different from the occlusion on fixed implant supported complete dentures?  Many restorations for natural teeth and implants are being made by utilizing CAD/CAM systems, with many restorations designed digitally using virtual wax-ups selected from a digital library of teeth that are stretched or condensed to fit your particular patient’s situation. What is the best way to check the occlusion on CAD/CAM implant restorations?

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

  • Understand the biomechanics of teeth and implants.
  • Apply a practical method of adjusting the occlusion of CAD/CAM restorations.
  • Demonstrate how to design the occlusion of full arch fixed and removable implant restorations.
