Course Overview

This presentation will outline the clinical steps required for successful planning and execution by the implant team to deliver full-arch implant supported provisional restorations at the time of implant placement. CT technology and current computer software applications greatly enhance the ability of the implant team to diagnose, treatment plan, and perform implant-supported therapy in a more sophisticated and profound way with greater accuracy, lower morbidity, and in shorter timeframes to meet patients’ demands. In this program, a CT guided implant treatment protocol will be discussed for fabrication of a laboratory processed full arch restoration to be delivered at the time of implant placement, as well as how a guided protocol can ultimately lead to an optimally fitting definitive prosthesis.


At the completion of the program, participants should be able to:

  • Learn the nuances of top-down treatment planning to successfully plan for implant-supported therapy for the full arch
  • Have a working knowledge of working with the surgeon/laboratory team to design prefabricated provisional restorations for immediate placement
  • Understand the preoperative steps necessary to plan for ideal implant placement using a guided Surgery System
  • Learn how to plan for the definitive restoration through the use of a clear duplicate
