Nowadays patients demand for a restoration that looks natural and this requirement has to be granted in the most simple, fast, accurate and pain-free way. The computer guided implant surgery and the Navigation system introduced a novel minimally invasive concept in the treatment of total edentulous and terminal dentition patients, with new digital algorithms that allow the daily use of this disruptive innovation. Moreover, novel digital platforms can embed all the diagnostic information obtained from CBCT, allowing a digital pathway based on facially driven virtual diagnostic waxing, prosthetically and soft tissue driven implant positioning and immediate fabrication of implant-supported screw-retained interim restorations. The recently published DASS and DyNAV techniques to sculpture the bone and soft tissue and achieve a scalloped interface and deliver a navigation guided complete arch restoration will be presented, as well us up to 15 years of follow up complete arch zirconia based prosthetic solution. The
1) Understanding the benefits and disadvantages of using digitally guided surgery and prosthetics techniques
2) Gain knowledge on the different clinical indication of CAD/CAM template guided implant surgery and x-guide navigation assited implant surgery
3) Feel confidence and being able to differentiate when immediate loading is feasible
4) Managing the soft tissue interface for pink free zirconia based complete arch restorations with a digitally assisted protocol.
