Learn About the Digital Transformation with Dr. Hamid Shafie

The term digital transformation is often confused with the term digital
workflow. Within implant dentistry, digital workflow is the utilization of digital
technology to standardize daily practice operations. Digital transformation
refers to the cultural change a practice must undergo in order to reap the
benefits of digital technology. Digital transformation requires rethinking the
products and services of a practice, rather than just its operations.
In the past, many surgeons have prioritized digital workflow by selecting
equipment or software without first considering the impact of new
technology on their practice, patients, staff, and referring doctors-digital
transformation. This has caused many digital initiatives to become inefficient
and underutilized.

    The Realities of Bone Grafting, Implant Placement and Soft Tissue Management

    While bone regenerative techniques to afford the clinician the opportunity to attain previously undreamt of treatment outcomes, specific protocols must be followed to ensure maximization of therapeutic results with minimization of patient morbidity. Through a combination of observation of six live surgeries, extensive lecture material, roundtable discussion, and hands-on exercises with fresh human cadavers, course participants will become well versed in the indications, contraindications, and execution of all augmentation treatment options.

  • Successful Implant Esthetics in Everyday Practice

    Successful Implant Esthetics in Everyday Practice

    Tooth replacement with dental implants has a proven high success rate. However restoring anterior teeth with implants remains a technique sensitive task. In the anterior region the surgical and restorative team is challenged with esthetic as well as functional success. Today’s patients and dentists alike have increased demands for optimal esthetics. This caused a paradigm shift from defining success of the dental implant as osseointegration into bone to defining success to also include a natural integration and blending of the prosthesis with the teeth and surrounding tissues. Any impairment in the esthetic outcome may be considered to be a failure.

  • Implant Failures: Prevention, Identification and Treament

    Implant Failures: Prevention, Identification and Treament

    In a physically healthy patient, regeneration of 6 mm of bone buccally and 3 mm of bone vertically is highly predictable. Implant failure rates, including “failing” immobile implants, should be less than 1 percent after 10 years in function. Achieving such results requires expansion of diagnostic protocols, incorporation of more comprehensive treatment modalities, stricter definitions of regenerative and implant success, an evolved understanding of the impact of implant dimensions, composition and configuration on treatment outcomes, and the utilization of only the finest regenerative, implant and restorative materials. The net result is the creation of a more comprehensive patient – treatment dialectic, the maximization of treatment outcomes and the minimization of patient trauma.

  • Taking TRIOS to the Next Level

    Taking TRIOS to the Next Level

    Digital technology promises to increase case acceptance, improve clinical predictability, elevate our patient’s experience and streamline team communication. But how does all of this actually come together? Whether you are a surgical or restorative clinician, investing in a TRIOS intraoral scanner is the critical first step in implementing digital techniques in dentistry. To realize its true potential it is necessary to learn how to combine intraoral scanning with other digital data like photography, radiology, and a variety of 3Shape software solutions.

  • Principles and Practice of Implant Dentistry

    Principles and Practice of Implant Dentistry

    The course is designed for dentists who are interested in gaining knowledge with dental implants. It will give the general dentist an overview of implant systems and their applications and will give participants the tools they need for successful diagnosis, treatment planning, implant selection and the process of creating a life like restoration. It will also give dentists an overview of advanced technologies including CAD-CAM and their applications in implant dentistry. The purpose of this course is the development of a better understanding of the use of implants in clinical dentistry regarding identification of implant components for impression taking and restoration fabrication.

  • Digital Implant Dentistry Course

    Digital Implant Dentistry Course

    The digital revolution in dentistry is progressing rapidly. The translation of digital technologies into the clinical field of implant dentistry has resulted in new treatment modalities at the surgical and restorative level. This three-day course is designed for clinicians and dental teams who wish to efficiently incorporate the digital work flow into their implant practices. This course will focus on the application of digital technologies in surgical and restorative implant dentistry, including digital scanners, cone beam CT scanners and 3D printers, and how the merging of CAD/CAM and CBCT data will culminate in a guided implant surgery technique and digital implant restorative techniques that can ultimately lead to an increased predictability, efficiency, and profitability in dental implant therapy. The time is now to understand how to implement digital implant dentistry into your practice.
