The digital guide for achieving a predictable result in complex rehabilitation
Dimitar Filtchev – Professor, Department of Prosthetic Dentistry, Faculty of Dentistry, Sofia Bulgaria
The course will go trough a different treatment planning protocol-a new way of digital planning and incorporating a psychology based teeth design. A full digital protocol will be presented for complex treatment planning.
Based on the planning, there are different treatment options, including perio, ortho, implant and prosthetic treatment.
How predictable the different protocols are, what are the positives and negatives of the digital planning, based on our clinical experience. Can we trust 100% the contemporary digital imaging systems, optical scanners? Can we use the orthodontic approach to solve our perio, implant and esthetic cases?
The course will try to answer on some of this questions and show how the digital tools changed our thinking in the recent years.
The practical session will focus on scanning protocols for teeth and implants, creating a personalized smile design and surgical guide for the implant placement.
The participants will learn how to use the advantages of the optical scanners and incorporate them in the whole process of planning, communication and creation of the perfect prosthetic restoration.
They will understand how the digital tools today change the clinical steps and predictability of the whole process.
