New Methods, Tools, & Capabilities for Fixed Full Arch Cases: A Hybrid for a Hybrid
This presentation will discuss fixed implant solutions for the edentulous patient. Advancements in technology, such as cone beam computed tomography (CBCT), planning software, and CAD/CAM, allow us to virtually develop a restorative-driven treatment plan that produces predictable results.
In this course, you will learn new techniques and methods to do a fixed prosthesis case. New screw less abutment technology allows cases to be restored in combination with traditional multi-unit abutments. This allows the prosthetic design to be more versatile, simpler, and faster to immediately provisionalize and restore. When and implant fails on an all-on-X case a new prosthesis usually has to be fabricated. This same technology can rescue or act and an “emergency” abutment to save the case.
