  • Lecture: Digital & Art Solutions for Simple and Complex Implant restorations
    The world of Dental Technology is changing and moving forward with new and exciting new developments in every of its facets. In my lecture I want to show how tooth-borne and especially implant-borne prosthetics can be easily planned, well communicated and patient oriented manufactured. Digital Dentistry allows us to have so much more room, flexibility and possibilities that the outcomes are even more beautiful and reproducible than before. Proper planning, communication and the right selection of a CADCAM partner is key to success.

    The aim of the presentation is to make everyday life in the Dental Laboratory working with implant-borne prosthetics more easy and reproducible.

    Together we will explore following:
    - Different possibilities of communication between Dental Laboratory and Dental Clinic for case planning
    - Inhouse / Chairside VS Milling-Center (When to use what?)
    - New possibilities of creating Art onto your Implant-borne prosthetics

  • Lecture: Transformation of complex cases in a digital laboratory
    As digital dental technology matures the coinciding increase in patient expectations leave the dental technician and clinician in a position unlike ever before. As a team we are expected to provide the most functional, biologically favorable as well as the most aesthetic restorations ever, within the shortest time possible. The expectation follows through to longevity of our restorations as well as long term biologic health surrounding the prosthesis. Utilizing CAD/CAM in our laboratory workflows can greatly reduce time surgically, clinically and in the laboratory. We will outline the theories and techniques behind the transformation from the analog workflow of the past in comparison to the digital workflows using CAD as well as leading manufacturing systems.


    - How to improve communication through the use of CAD/CAM with the patient and clinician.
    - How to improve current systems for manufacturing in the laboratory
    - Achieve faster and improved All on 4 results
    - Achieve more accurate diagnostic wax ups.
    - Explore the technician’s role in implant planning
