The goal of this webinar is to explore the use of 3D face scanning in the plannig of full arch implant surgical guides and restorations. By combining a 3D face scan the clinician can better visualize the desired outcome and adjust the plan accordingly. Better clinicial decisions can be made relating to implant position, any necessary bone reduction, lip support and esthectic concerns. Several face scanning products in diferent price ranges and quality will be compared with the pros and cons of each. Merging of the face scan with the CBCT and IOS data will be demonstrated as well as a discussion of the accuracy necessary based on the desired outcome and use.
