Francisco Fernando Todescan: Single tooth replacement in the aesthetic zone
- Digital treatment planning geared towards aesthetic success in anterior single unit implants
- Three-dimensional positioning of implants geared towards aesthetic success
- Emerging technology general session
- Nobel Biocare New York Global Symposium 2016
This presentation aims to examine how digital planning is extremely valuable for the replacement of single units in the esthetic zone aggregating precision and predictability. The threedimensional images of NobelClinician allow the surgeon to evaluate the site at every possible angle, defining the point of engagement at the palatal aspect of the alveolus, as well as the ideal length, diameter and inclination of the implant. This information is of utmost importance even when going for freehand surgery.
Dr. Francisco F. Todescan received a dental degree from the University of São Paulo, Brazil in 1982. He then successfully completed a master's degree and a clinical PhD in periodontology at the same university. This was followed by a two-year residency postgraduate program in periodontology at the University of California, Los Angeles. His doctor's degree thesis was done in collaboration with the University of Gothenburg in Sweden. Since 1996 Dr Todescan has held the post of Head of the two-year Program for Dental Implant Specialty at the University of São Paulo.
