Online Dentistry Show – implant planning with Exoplan 3.0 Galway

online dentistry show

Join a panel of speakers discuss implant planning at the Online Dentistry Show on the 19 March.

The International Digital Dentistry Association will host two lectures on implant planning at this year’s show.

The first lecture is with Professors Patrik Zachrisson and Chris Lefkaditis. They will discuss the summary of the new 3D concept in digital smile design.

The guided smile concept aims to make the entire implant process guided, with the end result in 3D prior to the prep of the teeth. Professors Zachrisson and Lefkaditis will show and discuss smile design principles and follow the guided smile concept through a 2D and 3D smile design using Exocad Galway.

Professors Adam Nulty and Quintus Van Tonder will then give a summary of the clinical workflow using Exocad Galway.

They will show and discuss how to set up a case for implant surgery using a surgical guide based on a CBCT.
