During this presentation participants will learn how to effectively implement digital technologies including IO scanning, photogrammetry and 3D printing / milling to fabricate full arch implant restorations. Participants will learn various entry points to a digital workflow while verifying each step with physical proof in the path towards the fabrication of a definitive prosthesis. Emphasis will be put on fundamental prosthodontic principles applied to a digital workflow development. Materials and methods presented are based on limited available supporting scientific literature and user experience, user discretion is advised before implementing any new material and or technique. All techniques described require a highly skilled and coordinated clinical and laboratory team with advanced skill in digital design of implant supported restorations.
At the conclusion of this session, attendees should be able to:
- Name and describe methods for making full-arch implant and abutment level impressions.
- Communicate diagnostic information to the dental laboratory necessary for digital design of a try-in or provisional prosthesis.
- Express the methods for manufacturing a digitally designed try-in or provisional prosthesis.
