Implant dentistry is evolving in a rather fast pace, and with it, so are the patient’s expectations regarding their clinical outcomes. With Immediate Implant protocols being a reality, today, it is important we keep updated with the current solutions available in the market and with how they can help all of us clinicians on creating more efficient protocols that are better for the patient, and also easier, faster and more profitable for our practices. To that end, understanding the various ways to restore and the prosthetic components available for tailoring your clinical solutions is key to a successful practice. Digital dentistry is also quickly becoming an important factor in our current standard of care. It is changing the economics, efficiencies and quality of dental treatment. It is not an issue of if you’re going to adopt it, but when. This program will provide an overview of the possible restorative workflows for Implants, including temporary and final restorations, analogic and digital, Implant-level and Abutment-level routes as well as discuss various Implant prosthetic solutions .
