Abstract Synopsis


Assoc. Prof. Dr. Dabarakis Nickos


In the last two decades dental implants have become an essential component of oral
rehabilitation. However the implant surgery is associated with potential risks and
complications. Non-invasive procedures and especially computer-guided implant
placement, can significantly minimize the risks and complications providing an ideal
implant position related to the final prosthesis and the proximity to vital an atomic
structures. The purpose of the lecture is to provide all the current knowledge from our
experience and the evidence based information on the subject of guided implant
placement, to present many clinical cases and discuss al the benefits from this
innovation but also the potential risks.
