Analog and digital, a full synergy for complex oral rehabilitations on implants
Lecture on 16th June 2023, in the morning
The digitization process has the potential to change the entire dental profession. The major benefits will be reduced production costs, improvement in time efficiency and fulfillment of patients’ perceptions of a modernized treatment concept. Still the artist touch is needed to obtain a state of the art restoration.
CAD/CAM softwares are providing many possibilities of performing dental prostheses, either they’re fixed, removable or movable. There are prosthetic restorations which do not reflect just how much work and effort lies behind them. Especially for prosthetic restorations on implants, it takes a sustained effort by the dental technician, even if we work digitally. Discreet, they are harmoniously integrated in the intraoral environment.
This lecture aims to present the way in which a discreet and harmonious total prosthetic restoration is achieved supported on telescopes, multiunits and implants. The concept of conical crowns made using the plating-ceramic technique with complete ceramics matrix and pure gold matrix has many positive features that facilitate a long-lasting restoration and high comfort for the patient even for the difficult cases.
