Abstract Synopsis


Assoc. Prof. Dr. Dimitar Filtchev
Associated Professor, Department of Prosthetic Dentistry Faculty of Dentistry, Sofia Bulgaria


The lecture will go trough a different treatment planning protocol-a new way of digital planning and
incorporating a psychology based teeth design. A full digital protocol will be presented with a new
biological concept of for creating a stable emergence profile.
Based on the planning, there are different treatment options, including immediate placement and
immediate loading of implants. How predictable the different protocols are, what are the positives
and negatives of the digital planning, based on our clinical experience. Can we trust 100% the
contemporary digital imaging systems, optical scanners? How predictable is the prosthetic guided
implantology and where are the limits? The lecture will try to answer on some of this questions and
show how the digital tools changed our thinking in the recent years.
