Digitally Enhanced Surgical and Prosthetic Rehabilitation: Collaborative Digital Workflow and Design

Traditional methods of designing and creating treatment plans, surgical guides, and restorations have been replaced by digital processes and with this, dentistry has forever changed. Multiple technologies have contributed to this trend, and technology continues to advance quickly. In addition to CBCT imaging, intra-oral & laboratory scanning, newer open software platforms for digital guides and restoration designs allow for local CADCAM production. Also, cost-effective milling and printing capabilities have accelerated this trend. Simultaneously, restorative materials have been introduced that have improved strength and esthetic qualities. Integration of these capabilities creates opportunities for enhanced restorative performance, decreased costs and treatment times, and improved practice efficiency. This presentation will focus on elements of the digital workflow including digital treatment planning using multiple datasets, linked digital workflows, guided implant surgery, digital smile design, and reconstruction with a surgical and prosthetic perspective. Also, CAD/CAM abutment and restorative design will be presented in the context of new possibilities for efficient and predictable esthetic restorative outcomes in the most complex situations.

At the conclusion of this lecture participants will have gained an understanding of:

  1. Become familiar with digital treatment protocols in contrast to traditional workflows
  2. Become familiar with current evidence for bio-materials, surgical protocols, and immediate or early loading of implants
  3. Be aware of the uses and current limitations of digital restorative design and CAD/CAM production
  4. Understand the trends in esthetic implant restorative material selection and design options
  5. Become familiar with digital technologies that enhance treatment outcomes and understand the difference of open and closed systems and “best in breed”

E. Todd Scheyer, DDS, MS

Dr. Scheyer received his bachelor’s degree in biology with honors from Arizona State University and attended dental school at The Medical College of Virginia at Virginia Commonwealth University from which he graduated Magna Cum Laude, earning clinical and research awards. Dr. Scheyer received his certificate in periodontics, conscious sedation, and a master’s degree from The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio and School of Biomedical Science, clinically focusing on Perio-Prosthetic Regeneration.

Dr. Scheyer was awarded the John F. Prichard Award for graduate research in February 2001. He is a Diplomate of the American Board of Periodontology. Dr. Scheyer has and currently serves as an officer and committee member for many outstanding dental organizations. He has served as Senior District 5 Trustee for the American Academy of Periodontology and is Past President of the Southwest Society of Periodontists and of the Texas Society of Periodontists.

He is in private practice limited to periodontics and implant reconstructive dentistry in Houston, Texas. Dr. Scheyer is a Clinical Assistant Instructor at the University of Texas Dental Branch-Houston and Guest Lecturer for the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. He continues to be a leader in clinical research and frequent publications from the private practice research network. Drs. McGuire and Scheyer have developed one of the most proficient clinical research centers and networks in periodontics and have been involved with clinical research networks since 1989.

Dr. Scheyer shares his research and vast perspectives through national and international lecturing and is a nationally recognized leader in his specialty field of periodontology. Drs. Scheyer and McGuire are recipients of multiple clinical and leadership awards from their profession. Clinical research interests are: tissue engineering for periodontal regeneration, dental implant-based reconstruction with digital efficiency treatment planning and clinical research.
