online Q&A
9:00 - 10:30

Digital workflows & guided implant surgery have become the buzzwords in today's education forums. It is our view that it is hard to justify the use of purely analog approaches today. While some clinicians consider the digital workflow difficult to implement into practice because of time, cost, and technology barriers, it can be easily incorporated. Through collaborative platforms and partnerships with laboratories and industry, this live-surgery will illustrate how guided surgery/restoration can easily be introduced into practice, improving accuracy, outcomes, profitability & pt experiences.

Learning Objectives:
1. Treatment planning: why and where immediate implant placement should be considered
2. Digital workflow and the role of the laboratory to easily implement it into practice
3. Recognize the value of Straumann's BLX implant (and soon TLX) for immediacy cases
4. Handling of bone and or tissue defects with biologics and autogenous products
5. Provisionalization to guide marginal tissues- crowns vs. custom healing abutments
