Communication is the key to minimizing everyone’s stress and achieving predictable time saving results for our patients, whether with single or multiple implant cases. From integrating diagnostic wax-ups with CBCT to create guides for controlled placement along with proper impression techniques; bite records; decision making cement-on vs. screw-in alternatives; and whether to splint or not splint will all create challenges when not handled nor communicated correctly.
- Gain insight into the challenges faced when restorative dentist, surgeon or lab do not communicate well as a team or do not understand proper planning or techniques through cases demonstrating these common problems
- Using proactive communication and proper treatment planning decisions, cases will be reviewed that allowed the lab, surgeon and restorative dentist to provide our patients with far more predictable results while saving time and money, resulting in happier patients and team members
- The critical role of digital planning will be reviewed
