Digital Workflow in Implant Dentistry

Is it the time of Evolution or Revolution?

The digital workflow in implant dentistry is not only currently undergoing significant improvement in the connectivity between clinical phases (from data acquisition & diagnostics to reconstructive rehabilitation), but also in the compatibility between industrial players. These changes have the potential to lead to more predictability and cost efficient treatment processes.
Prof. Tim Joda from the University of Bern, Dr. Gary Finelle from Dental7Paris and Dr. Jerry Lim from Orchard Scotts Dental have been successful in applying digital dentistry in the whole implant treatment workflow. We are proud to invite them to share their experiences with us.  
This lecture will discuss the modern treatment approach through digital workflows for implant rehabilitation in the esthetic zone as well as the posterior area.

Dr. Lim, our host to this lecture, has a genuine heart for his patients; he is a firm believer in taking a holistic approach to aesthetic dentistry, focusing on not only restoring the functional capabilities of the patient, but going one step further to enhance and balance the appearance of the patient’s smile and face.

This belief drove his interest in cosmetic and neuromuscular dentistry, motivating him to pursue advanced neuromuscular and aesthetic dentistry training at Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dentistry (LVI Global), Occlusion Connections (OC), and Interdisciplinary Dental Education Academy (IDEA). The extensive experience and skill afforded to him through years of advanced aesthetic training has helped improve the quality of life for many of his clients.
