Fully digital guided surgery

About Course

This is the most comprehensive course on guided surgery and immediate loading protocol. Following completion of this course, you will be able to place implants using Guided Surgery kit and immediately restore the case using a temporary restoration. If you are an implant restorative dentist, you will upgrade your skills in guided surgery and immediate loading concepts whilst at the same time familiarizing yourself with the possibilities for CAD/CAM prefabricated restorations.

Learn the three pillars of digital workflow (scan-design-manufacture). We start with an in-depth training on proper Cone Beam CT image interpretation with special emphasis on scanning and reconstructions tips and tricks. Then we will delve into digital planning starting with the integration between intraoral and Cone Beam CT scans. Subsequently, we continue with the digital prosthetic setup (backward planning) and continue to plan implants positions with consideration to both surgery and prosthetic planning. Subsequently, you learn all the steps involved in surgical guide design with respect to type of support, sleeve height, inspection windows and more.  The different digital workflows for partially and completely edentulous patients will be discussed. The use of fixation pins and the double scan technique for completely edentulous arches will also be demonstrated. We will practice implant placement on custom 3D printed models using Guided Surgery Kit.
