This program designed for the dental team, will explore current digital technologies and their potential for enhancing dental implant treatment. Information needed to design a custom implant restoration will be discussed, followed by impression methods, including a simplified impression protocol for fabrication of patient-specific implant-supported restorations. The benefits of using an intraoral digital scanner for data capture will be reviewed, as well as, the benefits for patients and the practice. Design principles for CAD/CAM abutments and aesthetic restorations will be presented.
