Implant and CAD/CAM dentistry are still two of the largest areas of growth in our field. As we look into the possibilities of combining the latest CAD/CAM technologies with the latest in implant dentistry, we find ourselves on the cutting edge of implant restorative procedures. With a complete understanding of the various scanners on the market, we will see how the digital interface is combined with the Bella-Tek Encode healing abutments. With this technology, the complete workflow is digitized to produce a Bella-Tek Encode definitive abutment and restoration, ultimately cutting down on chair time, improving the esthetics, and reducing the need to remove implant components after the day of delivery.
