Patient/team communication, treatment planning and execution represent the 3 pillars of interdisciplinary implant therapy. Likewise, all 3 demand to be carried out impeccably in order to ensure success. This presentation will review a dynamic linear process that articulates these 3 pillars, so that the vision and expectations of all parties involved (patient, restorative dentist, surgeon and technician) are aligned during the treatment of patients with a Terminal Dentition.
It will highlight how utilizing digital technology enhances the overall experience, facilitates communication and allows the team to deliver results with a higher level of precision when compared to conventional methods. It is also important for the treatment team to have a broad understanding of all clinical steps involved, so they can be carried out in an analog fashion, should any unexpected situation arise during therapy, which may call for a contingency plan.
