The computer guided implant surgery and the Navigation system introduced a novel minimally invasive concept in the treatment of total edentulous and terminal dentition patients, with new perspectives based on bone graftless rehabilitation, complication-free implant surgery and immediate function. The novel digital implant planning software allow the creation of the virtual patient directly from the CBCT, enhancing a digital pathway based on facially driven virtual diagnostic waxing, prosthetically and soft tissue driven implant positioning and immediate fabrication of implant-supported screw-retained interim restorations. The new DASS technique to sculpture the bone and soft tissue and achieve a scalloped interface for pink free restoration will be presented. The interplay between the guided surgery planning software and the Navigation System drives the virtual planning and the minimal invasive implant and prostheses positioning to the next level in terms of accuracy, predictability and low morbidity

Learning Objectives:

1) Understanding the benefits and disadvantages of using digitally guided surgery and prosthetics techniques

2) Gain knowledge on the different clinical indications of CAD/CAM template guided implant surgery and x-guide navigation implant surgery

3) Feel confidence and being able to differentiate when immediate loading is feasible

4) Managing the soft tissue interface for pink free full arch restorations with the DASS technique
