Presented by: Nilesh Parmar
Exhibitor: Titan Care, The Dental Imaging Company Ltd, Megagen

Location: The Felbridge Hotel and Spa, London Road, East Grinstead, West Sussex, RH19 2BH

CBCT scanning has come along way since its early inception in the 1970s. The demand for 3D assessment of hard and soft tissues has led to large developments in CBCT machines and associated imaging software.

A synergy between CAD/CAM machines and CBCT units have enabled dentists to treatment plan large implant cases from start to finish using virtual software. Only recently, with the availability of guided implant surgery and 3D printers have we been able to relay these virtual plans directly into the mouth.

In this lecture I shall:

  • outline the background of CBCT scanners
  • discuss CAD/CAM integration
  • consider the accuracy of guided surgery
  • go through clinical cases from start to finish
This presentation is aimed at the beginner through to the experienced; to those evaluating the use of CBCT machines in their day-to-day practice and to those who are experienced users of the technology.
