Soluciones digitales en implantología

Esta conferencia proporcionará una visión global de las tecnologías digitales actuales que están disponibles en el campo de la implantología. Empezando por planificación virtual de implantes y cirugía guiada, sobre escáneres intra-orales y tecnología CAD/CAM, hasta “digital smile design” Diseño digital de sonrisa y escáners faciales. La tecnología ha mejorado y agilizado el proceso de trabajo clínico, pero todavía presenta limitaciones. La precisión y eficiencia depende de muchos factores, que algunas veces están fuera del control del odontólogo. Y aunque el solape de los diferentes escáneres y tecnologías es posible, requieren pro software adicional and experiencia en el campo. Esta conferencia hará una demostración de cómo realizar tratamientos con implantes con un abordaje digital y aportará algunos trucos que pueden ayudar para solucionar el caso.

Digital solutions in implant dentistry

This lecture will provide an overview of the current digital technologies that are available for use in the field of implant dentistry. Starting from virtual implant planning and guided surgery, over intra-oral scanning and cad-cam technology, until digital smile design and face scanning. Technology has improved and fastened our clinical workflow, but still has some limitations. Accuracy and efficiency depend on many factors, which are sometimes out of the dentist’s control. And although the merging of different scans and technologies is possible, it requires additional software programs and experience in the field. This lecture will demonstrate how to do implant treatments in a digital approach and will provide some tricks that may help to solve the case.
