The evolution of digital technology in implant dentistry is developing at a rapid pace. The

mainstream availability of three dimensional imaging with CBCT has been a turning point in

providing safety and predictability in dento-alveolar surgery, as well as providing a platform for

restorative input into the treatment planning process. However, is this technology absolutely

necessary? And are we utilizing it to its full potential?  This lecture will explore the various technologies which can be integrated into the digital implant workflow with a clinical and evidenced-based approach to the advantages and disadvantages of each.


Upon course completion, you will:

Provide an overview of the digital implant workflow.

Discuss the potential of virtual implant treatment planning in every day implant treatment

for the surgical and restorative implant practitioner.

Become familiar with the CAD/CAM guided surgery options and their indications.

Present new techniques with CAD/CAM guided surgeries for both immediate loading of

single implants and full arch edentulous patients.
