    Efficiencies in Digital Implant Treatment Planning and Restoration from a TEAM Point of View

    The treatment of missing teeth with dental implants remains a significant priority for dental clinicians. This will be a 1-hour introductory webinar for the Smile In A Box solution (SIAB) focusing on the terminal dentitions and complete edentulous cases using a TEAM approach. The initial phase of the lecture will concentrate on diagnosis and effective dental implant treatment planning using digital options. In addition, how to utilize these digital data to formulate a virtual patient and assist the treatment planning and restorative process. This topic will be followed by a discussion of proper case selection, loading protocols, team approach, and prosthetic procedures that play a role in simple to complex implant therapies. We will discuss a team approach from dental laboratory, and surgical/restorative perspectives and how SIAB can be a turnkey solution in an implant practice.
