CT Imaging for Diagnostics, Treatment Planning, and Guided or Navigational Implant Surgery

An overview of using treatment planning software with hands-on training.


Three-dimensional digital treatment planning technology has improved patient diagnosis as well as implant planning, placement, and restoration. New advances with surgical planning software and intraoral scans have streamlined the treatment planning process to fabricate surgical templates, guide implant placement, and differentiate your clinical practice.

Course participants will experience hands-on 3D treatment planning using DTX Studio™ Implant software to address a number of challenging cases with real-life patient scenarios. Participants will virtually treat multiple cases to understand digital treatment planning and the digital workflow for single- and multi-tooth treatments. Additional highlights will include: clinical considerations for guided surgery, strategies to improve treatment collaboration, increasing referrals, and deploying more effective consultation techniques to increase patient acceptance.

This course is appropriate for clinicians (and dental technicians accompanying a clinician) who would like to leverage the benefits of 3D digital treatment planning technology and guided surgery. Co-sponsored by Nobel Biocare.
