Welcome To Digital Implantology
The use of osseointegrated dental implants was first defined in 1969. Ever since the understanding and the awareness about the nature of soft and hard tissue biology have simplified the practitioners’ ability to utilize dental implant rehabilitations in a more predictable way.
Nowadays, with the advances in radiology and 3D imaging, in combination with implant planning software have created an interdisciplinary setting in which communication leads to better patient care and a more predictable outcome.
Guided implant surgery has helped facilitate, simplify and overcome the most common challenges in dental implant therapy.
This type of approach enables any clinicians to operate difficult cases with a minimum invasive approach in a more successful way.
The aim of our courses is to teach the most update technique in guided implant surgery combined with immediate loading protocols.
Dr. Ciabattoni and Dr. Acocella, authors of the “Digital Implantology” book, will share with the participants all their experience in managing routine and complex clinical cases by using the available digital implant technology.
