    Clinical Workflow for Success with Digital Dentures by Dr. Brian Goodacre

    Participants will learn the benefits and get hands-on experience with a three-appointment workflow to fabricate digital dentures. This will include how to create a custom tray chairside in minutes, how to modify and evaluate a Wagner Try-in and record a centric relation record. Additionally, it is widely known that 3D printed complete dentures are becoming a viable option, but how do they compare to milled dentures? This lecture will compare the physical properties of milled and printed complete dentures to help determine their best applications.

    Learning Objectives:

    • Discuss how to use a three-appointment workflow for digital dentures
    • Discuss how to utilize intraoral scanners to streamline your digital denture workflow
    • Compare 3D printed and milled denture properties
    • Learn to evaluate and modify a digital denture preview online.
    • Practice creating a custom tray, evaluating and modifying a Wagner Try-in, and create a Centric Relation Record

    Many thanks to Avadent and Dexis for supporting the hands-on portion of this course.

    Diagnostic, Clinical, and Practical Considerations in the Management of Orthodontic Treatment with Clear Aligners by Dr. Antonio Secchi

    Control, efficiency, and versatility are key features when it comes to digitally planning our clear aligner treatments. This presentation will explore some important considerations of diagnosis and case selection when treating orthodontic cases with clear aligners. Also, clinical, and everyday practical considerations of clear aligners therapy will be reviewed, such as how and why we should customize the aligners trim line or merge STL and CBCT to have a true anatomical digital model. We will also discuss the advantages/disadvantages of adding to your office some 3D printing capabilities when it comes to manage clear aligners treatment. Treatment of cases with different types of malocclusions will be reviewed.

    Course Objectives:

    • To understand the importance of having control when digitally treatment planning aligners cases.
    • To learn how to properly select the trim line for your aligners.
    • To learn when and how to use a combined STL and CBCT files for treatment planning.
