Team Approach: Guided Full Arch

Course Overview

23 Credit Hours
NOTE: NDXnSequence only supports procedures performed in the United States and Canada.

This clinical based interdisciplinary course will focus on the integration of restorative, surgical and laboratory disciplines, combined with digital technology, to provide a seamless approach for totally guided full arch and full mouth immediate implant reconstruction. This unique, digitally planned, fully guided protocol includes placement of a prefabricated, computer guided, monolithic acrylic bar supported prosthesis for both edentulous and dentate arches.

Upcoming Course Dates

Indications and clinical protocols for this approach will be featured. Comparisons to, and advantages of utilizing the nSequence® Guided Prosthetics™ protocol over the conventional conversion denture protocol will be addressed in detail. Live surgery and comprehensive hands on workshop are included.

In this course, you will:

  1. Become comfortable diagnosing and virtual treatment planning full arch immediate implant reconstruction cases.

  2. Learn the appropriate parameters for All-on-XYZ diagnostics.

  3. Learn the unique nSequence® Guided Prosthetics™, digitally planned, fully guided surgical, restorative, and laboratory protocol for full arch immediate implant reconstruction and immediate function protocol.

  4. Understand the indications of a digitally planned, fully guided surgical, restorative and laboratory approach for immediate full arch implant reconstruction.

  5. Understand the advantages of the Immediate function protocol that involves the nSequence® Guided Prosthetics™ approach to digitally planned guided surgery protocol vs. the conventional conversion denture surgery protocol for full arch immediate implant reconstruction.
