Course Description

The PermaDontics Center is featuring innovative Ezguided Implant Planning from start to finish complete using EZplan. Participants will learn to treat patients with failing dentitions using patient-specific immediate load provisional prosthesis. The provisional prosthesis is miled/ printed out. Participants will learn the revolutionary and unique Ezguide system from Noris Medical. Learn modern proactive dentistry from implant planning, surgery, and immediate insertion of the Long Term Provisional Bridge made in advance with no conversion necessary. Learn how to treat this type of patient in 3 to 4 patient appointments from Scan to Final Prosthesis. Participants will also learn unique treatment protocols for patients who otherwise would need bone grafting. In addition, participants will learn how to plan these types of cases using the innovative Ezplan software for Ezguided procedures as well as the work flow for the Tuff implant and other Noris Medical products. Training will focus on cases, who present with advanced periodontal disease and multiple missing teeth and/or edentulous , as well as patients who have litle or no bone in the second premolar and molar areas (who would normally require bone grafting). Participants will watch a live surgery and live patient-specific immediate load provisional prosthesis delivery. State-of-the-art audio/visual will allow clinicians to see and hear the treatment from the operating room and prosthetic treatment rooms. Clinicians will leave with the ability to take their own patients from Digital Diagnosis to Delivery of the final case. The Clinicians will then be able to return to their offices to perform the treatment using the Noris Medical system.
