Digital Workflow; Creating Predictable Outcomes: A New Generation of Tools
Data collection, diagnostic wax-ups and surgical and restorative planning have been lengthy and cumbersome processes to produce a surgical guide. Current computer-guided surgical guides and systems have many limitations. Provisional restorations used at the time of implant placement can be difficult to use.
A new generation of computer guidance tools for implant surgery will be introduced that address many of the limitations of existing systems. This new system increases accuracy while efficiently managing inter-arch space, has direct irrigation on the implant drills while providing full guidance for implant procedures. The digital workflow used for surgical planning and surgical guide creation is then continued for restorative planning, creating precise, effective provisional restorations with pre-selected abutments.
These new total workflows expand the scope of exciting clinical treatment possibilities.
