"Digitally Enhanced Implant Dentistry"

Our Speaker:

 Dr. David Guichet is a Diplomat of the American Board of Prosthodontics and a graduate of the Maxillofacial Prosthetics Residency at UCLA. He completed a Prosthodontic Residency at the VAMC Wadsworth in West LA, a GPR at the VAMC in Long Beach CA, and received a DDS from UCLA. Dr. Guichet served as program chair for the Academy of Osseointegration, the American College of Prosthodontics and the Pacific Coast Society for Prosthodontics. He served as editor for the Academy of Osseointegration News and as past president of the Osseointegration Foundation and the Orange County Dental Society. He is the Director of Continuing Professional Education for the ACP and is on the Board of Councilors for the PCSP.

Traditional methods of creating restorations have been replaced by digital processes and have forever changed. The multiple technologies of 3D CBCT imaging, intraoral scanning, laboratory scanning, 3D digital restorative design and CAD/CAM production have contributed to this trend. Simultaneously, restorative materials have been introduced that have improved strength and esthetic qualities. Integration of these capabilities create opportunities for enhanced restorative performance, decreased costs, and practice efficiency.

This presentation will highlight a practice-based model centered on digitally enhanced treatment. Many elements of the digital workflow including, digital treatment planning using merged datasets, linked digital workflows, guided implant surgery, CAD/CAM abutment and restorative design will be presented in the context of new possibilities for efficient and predictable esthetic restorative outcomes. Additionally, expanded treatment options will be presented utilizing new evolutionary implant system designs. The goal of treatment success is based upon the thoughtful application of these technologies to patient’s specific needs.

At the completion of this course participants will:

  • Become familiar with digital treatment protocols in contrast to traditional workflows
  • Become familiar with digital technologies that enhance treatment outcomes
  • Be aware of the uses and limitations of digital restorative design and CAD/CAM production
  • Understand the trends in esthetic implant restorative material selection and design options
  • PCSP
