Occlusal Excellence in a Digital World: September 29, 2023

September 29 @ 7:30 am - 3:00 pm

This program is designed to look at the various digital technologies, discuss their accuracy, cost, and the ROI to your practice.

Course Description:

Digital dentistry is moving at warp speed.  While some dentists have embraced these changes, the vast majority of dentists are still wondering if the new technologies are as good as the tried and true analog methods, and if the expense is worth it.  This program is designed to look at the various digital technologies, discuss their accuracy, cost and the return on the investment.  Special emphasis will be placed on how the workflows in restorative, orthodontic and implant dentistry, can increase the predictability, efficiency and profitability of any practice. Most importantly these workflows will be viewed through the prism of obtaining optimum esthetic and occlusal outcomes, WITHOUT compromise.

Until recently, it was impossible to fully visualize many occlusal problems in a digital world. Now, however, mounting on a virtual articulator to do a diagnostic wax-up, assess a CR-MI slide, move teeth into a more stable relationship, design an occlusally correct orthotic, or perform a trial equilibration, is not only possible, it can be done with far greater efficiency, accuracy, and predictability. Come listen to Dr. Cranham illustrate the workflows that has transformed his practice.

You will learn:

How to evaluate the various scanning systems and see which may be a good fit for your practice.  

Best practices for scanning for diagnosis, simple crowns complex crown and bridge procedures, implant dentistry, and all other facets of dentistry.

How our thoughts on retraction and soft tissue management needs to be altered when we are scanning rather than using PVS or polyether impression materials.

How software can be utilized to mount your case on a virtual articular for analysis, diagnostic waxing, splint/night guard fabrication and a variety of other things

How the digital occlusal analysis workflow will save you HOURS of time in your practice.

Why Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) has become the standard of care in implant diagnosis and treatment planning as well as TMJ diagnosis, and how to easily embrace these concepts (even if you don’t personally own a cone beam).

How 3D printing/printers fit so well in a general practice.

If guided implant surgery, designing and printing surgical guides, is a viable thing for you to do in your office.

Why these technologies are affordable, and will increase the predictability, efficiency and profitability of what you are doing.
