Course & Training: Advanced Dental Imaging and 3D Diagnosis when Treatment Planning Dental Implants.


This two-day course is designed to provide implantologists of all levels the ability to confidently integrate three dimensional diagnosis and treatment planning in their daily practice.  The program will consist of lectures and case presentations, over-the-shoulder hands-on computer software training, practical hands-on exercises and a live-surgery demonstration during which use of the computer generated surgical guide and accessories will be demonstrated. In addition, anatomical interpretation and sequential diagnostic protocols for implant planning and placement will be taught and explained. On the second day simulated surgical implant placement will be practiced on computer generated models from the scans submitted by attendees. In the afternoon there will be a live surgery demonstration during which a computer generated surgical guide and accessories will be demonstrated.


Upon completion of this course, attendees will be able to:

  • Understand the importance and advantages of cone-beam imaging.
  • Assess implant recipient site anatomy three-dimensionally.
  • Differentiate abnormal findings versus artifacts.
  • Identify vital structures and tagging them on a CBCT study.
  • Utilizing software tools to enhance visualization and diagnostics.
  • When to refer to an ENT for further evaluation.
  • Identify the prosthetic need for site preparation and/or preservation.
  • Cone beam CT evaluation using a sequential diagnostic protocol.
  • Perform interactive treatment planning on your own computer.
  • Utilize CBCT and virtual implant planning software to increase case success.
  • Know how to order and customize surgical guide design for each case.
  • Understand the workflow from obtaining a scan, to ordering surgical guides.
  • Utilize the In Vivo surgical guide drill handle kit.
  • Decision making when purchasing a CBCT unit.
  • Medico-legal ramifications of CBCT.


  1. Submission of a basic dental implant case you plan to treat in your practice after attending the course.
  2. A laptop computer with enough processing power to download and utilize the InVivo software during and after the course.
  3. All participants to this course will receive a free 60-day fully functional version of InVivo 5 implant planning software installed on their laptop computer.
