Digitally and Biologically Driven for Full-arch Reconstruction
Alessandro Pozzi, DDS, PhD
Digital workflow can enhance the treatment of complex cases in which the anatomic deficiencies must be addressed as well as the demands of a minimally invasive approach and high esthetic outcome. Advanced optical scanning technology, blended with the CBCT assessment conducted with the “Smiling Scan Technique” provide the team with a comprehensive virtual scenario that will drive decision-making toward a personalized treatment plan. New surgical and prosthetic protocols based on the dynamic navigation technology will be widely described to allow the attendees to deliver a precise position of the implants as well as of the complete arch x-guided prosthesis. The new digital assisted soft sculpturing (DASS) technique to sculpture the bone and soft tissue and the use of xenogeneic collagen matrix to achieve a scalloped interface for highly esthetic pink free restoration will be presented on real patient models training. The interplay between IOS scanning, navigation system and modern biomaterials for soft-tissue healing enhancement and development drives the participants to the next level in terms of accuracy, predictability and low morbidity. The hands-on portion will include both software and models training. It will be based on real patient files and real patient 3D printed models in order to have a comprehensive training on the digital part of the technique and on to the models (Surgical and Prosthodontic).
Upon completion of this presentation, participants should be able to: 1) analyze the benefits and disadvantages of using digitally guided surgery and prosthetics techniques; 2) explain the different clinical indications of CAD/CAM template guided implant surgery and x-guide navigation implant surgery; 3) determine when immediate loading is feasible; and 4) describe the soft-tissue interface for pink-free full-arch restorations.
