CE Credits: 3 Hour Lecture |  Subject: Digital Restorative |  Recommended for: All Attendees 

As technology and surgical protocols advance, full arch implant solutions are becoming increasingly common. Planning and executing full arch fixed implant solutions can be a confusing and complicated endeavor. This lecture-based course aims to address some of the most commonly encountered questions and complications with these “All on X” restorations. It will include restoratively driven treatment planning, digital planning for surgical guides, digital restorative solutions, a materials review, and how to utilize multi-unit abutment. This course includes digital planning and surgical guides and can be modified to highlight removable implant overdentures, fixed full arch, or both.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the factors and restorative materials involved in treatment planning for all on X cases.
  • Be familiar with CBCT protocols and how to order a surgical guide.
  • Know how to leverage CAD/CAM solutions for predictable full-arch prosthetics.
  • Understand indications and processes for immediate loading provisionalization.
