ITI Treatment Guide Volume 11:Digital Workflows in Implant Dentistry
The field of implant dentistry continues to grow both in terms of the number of practitioners placing and restoring implants and in terms of as well as patient demand for successful outcomes in as short a time as possible. The pace of technological changes and new offerings from implant manufacturers and allied industries are equally fast in their attempts to meet these demands, with a frequently bewildering array of potential solutions available to clinicians. This is never more so than in the field of digital dentistry, with hardware and software solutions for diagnosis, imaging, planning, surgery, impression-taking, and the computer-aided design and manufacture of intraoral prostheses.
However, we must always remember our responsibility to ensure that our treatments are carried out safely and in the best interests of our patients. This new Volume 11 of the ITI Treatment Guide series continues the successful theme of the previous ten volumes: a compendium of evidence-based methodology in digital techniques and procedures for daily practice. Written by renowned clinicians and supported by contributions from expert practitioners, the ITI Treatment Guide Digital Workflows in Implant Dentistry provides a comprehensive overview of various technological options and their safe clinical application.
The forthcoming Volume 12 of the ITI Treatment Guide series will address the integration and management of peri-implant soft tissue.
