Planning before treating – regardless of level of experience! This fundamentally important module focuses on the importance of diagnosis and treatment planning. This session will review the key aspects of the planning process:
- The clinical examination and record collection: smile analysis, periodontal framework, restorative condition and occlusion;
- Highlight the decision-making process for the transitional and definitive restorative plan prior to surgery.
- The value of data acquired with CBCTs for assessment of anatomy, identification of potential risks for ridge augmentation and implant placement, and planning implant position from a restorative perspective;
- Expose the participant to 3D planning with a variety of software systems.
