+ Course Information

• Fixed Hybrid Implant Therapy

  • The fixed implant hybrid is one of the more complex procedures a general dentist can offer. It requires the collaboration between the restorative dentist, surgical dentist, and dental laboratory to achieve predictable results. While a proven concept and technique, the traditional method often creates complexity and confusion which leads to less than ideal results and stress. Modern technology is taking what was once complex and confusing and making it predictable and faster.

    In this informative program, Dr. Tarun Agarwal will share how his practice is leveraging digital technologies to create a collaborative environment that produces excellent results for the fixed implant hybrid quicker, less stressful, and more profitable. Specifically, he will share his five step workflow to predictability - diagnosis, virtual planning, surgery, immediate conversion, and final restoration.

Learning Objectives

• Seeing Radiology in 3D: The Future of Digital Dentistry

  • With the advent of cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) three-dimensional radiology was made available for the dental practice. CBCT imaging provides greater diagnostic capabilities as well as serving as the foundation for integrating digital dentistry into modern practice. This course will explore the following topics:

    How does cone beam CT work and how does one decide what type of system to purchase?

    What are the radiation risks associated with CBCT?

    What are the legal responsibilities for CBCT owners?

    What are the current clinical applications especially in regard to the integration of digital dentistry in the creation of the virtual patient?

Learning Objectives

  • Learn about the clinical applications of cone beam CT as well as the diagnostic advantages of 3D imaging over 2D
  • Learn about how cone beam CT works, radiation risks and legal responsibilities associated with using CBCT and when to refer cases to maxillofacial radiologists for reports
  • Know how to ask the right questions in purchasing a CBCT system and understand why such systems form the foundation for digital dentistry
