Analog Skills and Digital Technology in Implant Surgery: How They Impact Your Treatment Outcomes
Time: 8:45 AM, February 24, 2024
Speaker: Dr. Sonia Leziy
This presentation will review the changing landscape in implant surgical and restorative thinking and treatment. The goal in common to all clinicians is to provide care using proven surgical and restorative materials and concepts. Early adoption of emerging technologies, innovations and concepts or challenging norms/traditional methods challenges this philosophy, but may shape and improve patient experiences and treatment outcomes.
The objectives of this presentation is to include literature reviews and to present the clinician’s experiences as they relate to:
• Digital/virtual planning, communication, documentation and treatment. Understand why your surgical team member needs to be investigated in the digital workflow to ensure a high level of precision and minimize restorative complications.
• Immediate surgical and restorative protocols in small edentulous sites. Current concepts to control the stability of the tissue interface and decrease post-restorative complications and esthetic failures.
• Recognize why delayed or late protocols sometimes need to be considered in our era of ‘as fast as possible’ through risk assessment and personalized care plans.
