In the ever-evolving landscape of digital dentistry, staying ahead of the curve is not just an advantage; it's a necessity. The recent Smile Today® course was organized and hosted by ZimVie® and presented by Dr. Amar Katranji. It has brought together professionals from all over the US at ZimVie® Institute South, part of their international network of state-of-the-art training facilities, to offer a glimpse into the future of digital dentistry.
Grounded in science-based workflows, this 2-day full arch digital immediate loading course aimed to reduce patient chair time, minimize variables, improve efficiency, and boost profitability in dental practices. Surgeons and restorative doctors were encouraged to train as a cohesive team, mirroring the real-world execution of life-changing procedures. Upon completion of the course, the participants have boosted their skills in case recognition, treatment planning, restorative and surgical workflows as well as prosthesis selection and design.
“It's something that we can incorporate into our practice, incorporate into our workflow.”
The integration of digital workflows for full arch restorations was the key topics of interest for many attendees. Dr. Katranji shared his vast expertise on all the steps of a full arch restoration. He also directed several hands-on experiences on guided surgeries, implant placement and an immediate loading workflow featuring the PIC system for scientifically proven precise implants capture, which he uses at his own practice.
“Our partnerships together bring the very best.”
The fusion of ZimVie®'s innovative technologies with PIC dental's 15-year track record of bringing predictable full arch rehabilitations to dental practices created a synergy that resonated with all participants. With a rich history of quality dental solutions including their work as a leading dental implants manufacturer, ZimVie® has consistently been at the forefront of digital dentistry advancements.
This course showcased ZimVie®'s commitment to pushing the boundaries of what is possible in the world of dental implants and restorations. The collaboration with PIC dental was driven by a shared commitment to providing professionals with the very best in the industry.
Participants shared how the PIC system and the PIC pro workflow can change the way they approach treatment by reducing treatment times and costs by unlocking the capacity to predictably produce perfectly fitting prostheses. The consensus was clear: the PIC system is not just a device; it's an entire digital workflow.
“PIC system is the next step. Analog is like a horse. This is a Ferrari. No doubt."
The course not only provided insights into the current state of digital dentistry but also encouraged professionals to explore the possibilities that lie ahead. Participants left with not just knowledge but a practical understanding of how to implement digital solutions, such as the PIC system, for optimal results. Overall, the collaboration between ZimVie® and PIC dental was not just a meeting of minds; it was a convergence of cutting-edge technologies and educational expertise!
