More recently, this area has advanced and enjoyed exponential growth with many and varied new technologies, interactions, techniques and processes being unveiled with consistent regularity.
Such is the advancement in this field that digital technology can be seen to be involved in potentially all aspects of implant treatment, including diagnosis, special investigation, treatment planning, surgical implant placement, impression taking, laboratory stages and restoration of dental implants.
Continuing ADI’s series of ADI Focus Meetings, where an area of particular relevance in the practice of implant dentistry is investigated and discussed, five world class speakers will take to the stage for Focus on digital implant dentistry: the present – the future, each presenting a different aspect of digital implant dentistry according to their area of expertise.
- Andrew Dawood – Current digital planning strategies in implant dentistry
- Tim Joda – Implant impressions – how many bits and bytes are necessary?
- Julian Osorio – Achieving ideal aesthetics and function with patient-specific abutments
- Stephen E B Jones and Steve Campbell – The role of CAD/CAM in contemporary fixed and removable beam and bar prostheses.
