Utilizing 100% Digital Workflow 

Embracing Digital Dentistry

This course will introduce each participant to the possibilities of complex case planning utilizing 100% digital workflows. Special emphasis will be placed on understanding how software can be utilized to manipulate digital data from scanners and CBCTs to create high-resolution outputs from 3D Printers. Each participant will have control over their own computer, loaded with the 3Shapes Premier software, and will learn how to mount models, perform trial equilibrations, program a virtual articulator, perform simple & complex diagnostic wax-ups, as well as design an orthotic.

Through lectures, demonstrations, and hands-on exercises, every participant will learn how to apply The Pankey Institutes’ timeless principles of occlusion, esthetic, biological health, and tooth-by-tooth structural integrity to contemporary digital workflows. Emphasis will be placed on how valuable time can be saved and where the return on investment resides with these rapidly emerging technologies.

Learning Objectives

At the completion of this course, participants will be able to:

– How to mount Intra Oral Scans onto a virtual articulator, program the instrument, analyze occlusions in a virtual environment, and how this saves HOURS of time.
– How to perform trial equilibrations virtually + how and when to go back to an analog articulator with printed models to perform this task.
– How to perform basic and complex virtual wax-ups (digital designs) and why this will create superior outputs in far less time once the buttonology is mastered.
– How to use Splint Studio to design and print a TMJ orthotic.
– How to involve your team to maximize the use of the technology, while decreasing doctor time.
