Digital impressions of implant scan bodies simplify the implant treatment process while improving the patient experience. Imagine an intuitive chairside digital capture of teeth and scan bodies incorporating dentate and/ or edentulous mouths. View and manipulate what is scanned in real time at 10-plus times magnification on a flat-screen monitor. Create virtual implant guides and/or treatment plans, and then transfer the data to a restorative, surgical or laboratory partner. With the implementation of an intraoral scanner, the surgical team can provide consistent esthetic outcomes that patients expect and offer a great service to referrals, while also encouraging incremental patient referrals. The IOS patient experience can differentiate a practitioner from others and give him or her access to laboratories that other referral sources may not have. Layer in 3D printing, CAD/CAM and/or a CBCT with IOS and introduce digital workflows to procure surgical guides, implant abutments and/or restorations. This hands-on course will allow surgeons to determine if an IOS strategy can become an important marketing tool for their practice and how to implement the strategy.
o Discuss the benefits and limitations of different IOS systems.
o Perform clinical procedures associated with IOS.
o Identify the potential advantages of making digital impressions at the implant surgical release instead of a referral making conventional impressions at a separate
o Describe the use of multiple digital workflows, which all begin with IOS to empower referral base.
o Examine the potential of combining IOS and CBCT technology to create virtual treatment plans and printing surgical guides.
