Digital Dentistry: Using technology to provide optimal management of the failing dentition
Managing a failing dentition can be challenging. Intraoral scan technology signficantly enhances our ability to diagnose, record, present, plan and ultimately treat simple and complex cases, achieving optimal outcomes. This presentation demonstrates how this can be accomplished at all levels.
- Be able to assess patients for multiple different signs of a failing dentition
- Be able to communicate findings and treatment options effectively with patients, colleagues and dental laboratory
- Understand the goals of functional rehabilitation in fully dentate and partially dentate patients
- Understand the importance of accuracy and reproducibility when managing patients, using intraoral scanners
