TOPIC: The Art and Technology in Modern Interdisciplinary Treatment Planning

The new generation of Interdisciplinary software allows us to develop complete digital workflows, from Facial analysis and 3D smile design all the way to interdisciplinary planning and fabrication of all components, appliances, guides and restorations needed. The workflow creates a unique predictability and efficiency by digitally linking the initial mock-up to the provisional and final restorations. This initial 3D project is also overlapped with Ortho 3D, CAD/CAM, Guided Surgery and Orthognathic software creating a realistic and precise interdisciplinary treatment all developed in one platform.
Another important highlight of this process is the impact on patient education and motivation increasing drastically case acceptance through visual communication and emotional link.This lecture will also cover the process of implementation of this technology and options according to the dental office business model.
