This presentation will discuss and demonstrate how the natural synergy of surgical and prosthetic therapy can lead to much more accurate and efficient treatment. Topics such as digital workflow, blood biologics, guided implant surgery and grafting, immediate loading and perio-restorative design will be highlighted.
