Strategies for Managing Complex Anterior Cases

Streamlining Implant Restorations Using a Digital Dental Workflow
2 credits
Bryan J. Frantz, D.M.D., M.S., Thomas Langan, D.M.D., M.S., Matthew Palermo, D.M.D.

The objective of this course is to discuss the advantages of using digital scanning for implant restorations. Advancements in digital dentistry have lead to a more streamlined service for the patient, which is more comfortable and more accurate. The lab receives the information almost immediately, and the restorations are milled precisely to aid with fit.
