  • Consistently connect implant treatment plans with a delivery system
  • Achieve 99.9% accuracy in passivity of prosthesis
  • Develop a dependable support system for clinic and lab with pragmatic protocols
  • Help patients restore smiles in the most effective and least intrusive way
  • Achieve same-day dentistry integrating tech precision, expertise and efficiency
  • Treat patients in fewer appointments with no verification jig and temporary cylinders, and no TI bases needed for immediate load provisional

Upon successful completion of the lecture, participants will lean how to virtualize their patients to send complete patient's data to specialized laboratories, as well as how to manufacture full-arch provisionals in the clinic with 3D printing technology.
