Dr. Sebastian Soicu


I started my journey in implant dentisty approximately 15 years ago and for the first 6 years I was doing only cement-retained restorations, in a way that resembled the traditional workflow for fabricating tooth-bourne fixed restorations. Next, I turned to screw-retained prosthesis and hybrid crowns, while still following the analog protocol.

Implementing the digital workflow in my everyday practice has offered me the chance of having same-day chairside restorations, as well as screw-retained bridges of utmost precision and very good integration in the oral environment.

The goal of this lecture is to present the transition from the analog to the digital workflow, including some surgical and prosthetic steps, as well as a few basic biological principles, emphasizing the changes that digital technology has driven into my daily practice. The simplified workflow described in some of the cases provides both the clinician and the patient with the possibility of reducing the number of sessions, which may also meet the treatment requirements during this new ”Covid era”.

By attending this presentation, participants will be able to:

- understand some surgical and restorative concepts that shoud be applied for implant-supported fixed restorations;

- make a comparison between the analog and the digital way of treating partially edentulous cases;

- appreciate the advantages of implementing the digital workflow in certain clinical situations.
