BERLIN, Germany: According to implantology and periodontics specialist Dr Juan Arias Romero, a new synergy between digital planning, guided implant placement and the use of MIS Implants Technologies’ CONNECT abutments has the potential to redefine implant dentistry. In a free webinar that will be held on 26 September at 6 p.m. CEST, Dr Arias will address hard- and soft-tissue management in aesthetically compromised cases and how digital tools can help clinicians to plan for and achieve the best possible outcome.

Dental patients are increasingly motivated by aesthetics, and Dr Arias reminds us that the success of a case depends as much on the position and architecture of the tissue as it does on the final position, colour, shape and size of the teeth. Digital dentistry makes it possible for clinicians to plan tissue and implant position before treatment, and this improves the predictability and quality of the treatment outcome.

Dr Arias explained to Dental Tribune International that his lecture, titled “Hard and soft tissue management as well as digital control in the aesthetic outcome”, will address the realm of digital planning in dentistry, exploring the revolutionary advancements that technology has brought to the field. He said: “As we embark on a journey into the realm of guided implant placement and the use of CONNECT abutments through digital precision, we will explore how digital tools and techniques have enhanced precision, efficiency and patient outcomes in various dental procedures.”

Delving into the intricacies of guided implant placement through a number of case studies, Dr Arias will demonstrate how computer-generated surgical guides enhance accuracy and predictability during surgery and how harnessing the power of intra-oral scanners and specialised software can enable dental professionals to create treatment plans that are tailored to each patient’s anatomy and to the desired outcome. The lecture will also demonstrate how CONNECT abutments can provide unparalleled precision when used together with CAD/CAM software and how digital technologies enable improved decision-making when it comes to the fit, function and aesthetics of each case.

Additionally, webinar participants will gain insights into a range of digital tools, such as 3D imaging, intra-oral scanning and CAD/CAM, and into the integration of digital solutions in treatment planning, restoration design and overall patient care. The lecture will also address the collaboration between clinicians and dental laboratories.

The webinar is intended for all dentists who want to explore the field of digital dentistry and have an interest in the management of hard and soft tissue for aesthetic outcomes. Dr Arias hopes that the presentation will empower dental professionals with the knowledge and tools needed to embrace the future of dental implant procedures. Participants will have the chance to earn continuing education credits upon completion of a quiz.
