This presentation will give an extensive overview of the latest developments and increased use of High Performance Polymers (HPPs) in implant dentistry. It will cover current indications and limitations of HPPs alongside future uses focusing on implant supported restorations, and will detail the history of HPPs’ use in general medical surgery prior to their use in the oral environment. The presentation will also touch on digital communication from lab to surgery and back again.
The lecture will also cover the application of the BDT Technique, a system that allows for increased predictability when applying the technique to full arch implant restorations. The technique will cover planning, production and realisation of the final prostheses utilising the latest developments of the technique.
The presentation will conclude with case studies highlighting the points covered throughout the lecture demonstrating the success of the materials and workflow when utilised correctly.
