Course Overview

This interactive course is structured to provide step-by-step training at a very personal level. It utilizes case-based learning methods emphasizing evidence-based and daily use learning. Participants will experience how to use the Static Guided Surgery and the Dynamic Navigation Surgery in fully edentulous and terminal Dentition patients. The most advanced 3D implant & prosthetic planning software will be  presented, and it will be described how to streamline the digital workflow to make more predictable the immediate implant placement and the immediate provisionalization protocols. The attendees will increase their confidence and skills with digital planning, being able to discern when the patient is a candidate for a complete arch restoration with a natural emergence from a scalloped soft tissue or for an all-on-x type prosthesis. All the surgical and prosthetic aspects related to the management of the two types of treatment options will be addressed and in particular how to transform a flat interface in a scalloped soft and bone tissue interface with life-like papillae. Indications and limitations of the static and dynamic guided surgery will be reviewed and discussed, and advanced procedures addressed, including mini-flap, flap in combination with grafting, guided sinus elevation techniques, and digital protocols for immediate implant placement and loading. Special emphasis will be given to implant aesthetics and interdisciplinary treatment plan.
