This will be a step-by-step course to learn the concept of CAD-CAM using intraoral scanners of different systems and proceeding with dental treatments with enhanced predictability by using digital dentistry. It includes all knowledge required to proceed with digital workflow, from the first patient appointment to the use of a virtual patient to perform dental treatment planning and rehabilitating a patient using CAD-CAM technology. It will also include decision-making in dentistry, with review of several challenging clinical cases as well as step-by-step digital waxing procedures and a group of clinical cases with CAD-CAM systems.

All this course content will be presented along with the scientific base and evidence in a very clear way to aid attendees in understanding which procedures are actually predictable and acceptable for which clinical situations. This will ideally help those dental clinicians who are implementing digital technology and CAD-CAM in their clinics and private practices. Specific digital workflows for aesthetic areas and rehabilitations involving surgical procedures such as implant placement will also be discussed in detail. In addition, all knowledge required to understand about all 2D and 3D imaging methods used in digital dentistry will be discussed, including different types of files, roles, limitations, advantages and disadvantages of each imaging method considering the current technologies available for dental clinicians, laboratories and radiology or imaging centers.

Upon successful completion of this course, attendees will:

  • Learn details about imaging methods used in digital dentistry.
  • Understand how to choose restoration types for the contemporary digital dentist.
  • Understand the use of the virtual patient for dental treatment planning.
  • Learn step-by-step procedures to digitally design prostheses.
  • Learn how to implement digital dentistry in their practices for all their patients.
  • Understand CAD-CAM technology in dentistry.
  • Understand and implement 3D printing in dentistry.
