+ Course Information

• Clinical Applications of CAD/CAM Dentistry in the Practice

  • CAD/CAM dentistry is evolving at a rapid pace. There are constant improvements in materials, software and also applications such as implant placement and restoration. With this, it is very difficult for most dentists to keep track of how to apply all these new innovations. In this course, we will try to make sense of these options by discussing software improvements, ideal materials for certain clinical scenarios, and even how to simplify your preparation protocol for success. We will also introduce multiple workflows for placing and restoring implants.

Learning Objectives

  • How to simplify your preparation protocol for better clinical longevity of all materials
  • How to choose the proper material for both anterior and posterior cases based on esthetic and functional needs
  • Introduce several workflows for placing and restoring implants
