About this course

The possibilities in digital dentistry have profoundly changed the clinical practice of prosthetic dentistry.

Most prosthetic restorations are produced digitally – while many dentists still base their clinical practice on analogue procedures. The use of intraoral scanners offers dentists the opportunity to take advantage of the many benefits of digital applications in prosthetic dentistry.  

In this 1.5-day course, you will acquire the necessary technology behind the intraoral scanners and how the technology affects clinical procedures in prosthetic dentistry. 

The course will cover all aspects of the digital production line from tooth preparation strategies and clinical use of the IO scanner to clinical decision making on proper restorative materials.

The exercises will focus on minimal invasive restorations, and the participants will have the opportunity to practice the preparations in microscopes. Suitable working positions using microscopes will be demonstrated.

And learn how to perform a successful scan of single unit prosthetic restorations. 

All participants will be trained individually in advanced simulation units where they will perform tooth preparations and subsequently perform an intraoral scan. 

What is offered during the 1.5 days program:

  • 10 hours of theoretical lecture and hands-on practice
  • Each participant has its working station and individual instruments and devices
  • Access to intraoral scanners for personalized training in scanning strategies
  • A customized microscope for each participant (Zeiss or Global) with HD camera and individual monitors
  • 3D microscopic demonstration
