From Traditional To Digital Dentistry: Full Digital Approach
19 Mar 2022, 20:00 WATCH ON-DEMAND Area of interest: General Dentistry, Restorative Dentistry




Aesthetics in dentistry today is an all-encompassing multidisciplinary treatment process that dentists provide for patients. While some cases may have obvious solutions, many can leave us indecisive on the best treatment options, especially when we are faced with numerous possibilities of restorative materials. Having a working protocol is vital in equipping both practitioners and patients to make important informed decisions. Topics will include the workflow of indirect restorative treatment focusing on tooth preparation design and tooth surface topography, provisional restorations and tissue management, impression techniques including digital scanning, cements and adhesive cementation. Different workflows will be discussed both for teeth-supported as well as implant-supported restorations. 

The main objective of this webinar is to show evidence-based requirements and conceptual bases that should be followed such to optimize and efficiently achieve results in modern restorative and implant dentistry. Focused will be given in the digital workflow.
