To create highly aesthetic and 100% individual restorations, the notion of predictability and 3D virtual reproduction of the patient face are core concepts for effective digital workflows. DT Sergio Polisi will explain innovative technologies for the digital acquisition of the patient’s oral situation and physiognomy, which can be captured and imported in the software in a 1:1 ratio – that is, with no loss of precious information. By showing real patient cases, he will describe how the treatment team can improve patient satisfaction through workflows that enable a reduction of chair-side appointments and the realistic preview of the final prostheses, for 100% individual restorations. Within this framework, new 3D virtual face animation and articulation concepts for a faster design of implant-supported Toronto bridges will also be outlined.
• Recognise the importance of digital patient diagnostics
• Identify the advantages of a 3D virtual patient-based treatment planning for 100% individual and aesthetic restorations
• Evaluate new working concepts for faster and smart design of implant-supported Toronto bridges
