The concept of guided surgery and implant placement is often ignored for multiple reasons. Generally, the cost of the surgical stents and the arduous process of planning and fabricating the stent have been the largest deterrents and the majority of the modality would have to be outsourced. With the advancements in technology, a large number of doctors have been able to incorporate both cad/cam and cone beam into their practices to diagnose, treatment plan, and deliver care to the highest standard possible. This has also allowed the practitioner to have complete control over the whole complex, from the precise fixture placement to the appropriate emergence profile for the restoration.

This CE course will demystify the process and how a dentist can reach the final product with great efficiency and predictability. Surgical stent process are described in great detail, ranging from simple tooth borne cases to complex edentulous procedures. Furthermore, the surgical options are cataloged in great detail where the clinician can make practice purchase decision with regards to the appropriate armamentarium needed to provide the surgery. The presentation is provided in a neutral manner without favoring any specific implant product line and details how anyone with appropriate access to the technologies can enter the field of guided implant surgery.

This course was well constructed and delivered. For those of us trying to enter the implant placement game, it was very empowering. I've worked and relied upon my local, very talented, surgeons to place the implants that I have restored. I've always been anxious about placing simply because I always thought that I'd have a lot of bad placements before mine would begin to rival theirs. It's clear to me now, however, that using a well planned stent for a fully guided surgery will predictably allow me to get a better result than most any free handed operator. This becomes even more obvious considering the impact on the precision of the restorative outcome. Thanks Armen, this was a game changer.
