Luc Vrielinck: Patient centered treatment
- Case-based choice of surgical templates
- Guided surgery in different clinical scenarios
- Emerging technology general session
- Nobel Biocare New York Global Symposium 2016
In order to be able to design a truly patient centered treatment plan a variety of crucial information on the individual patient needs to be gathered. Using the information from the NobelClinician system, different surgical templates become available to assist the implantologist in predictable treatment execution. Each of them has specific indications and it is important to choose the right tool for the right indication. The expert presents an algorithm which can be helpful to make this choice.
Dr. Luc Vrielinck attended the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven School of Dentistry in Belgium, where he was trained as a dentist and as a maxillofacial surgeon. In 1989, he started a private practice in Ziekenhuis Oost Limburg in Genk, Belgium. Since 1999, he has been working extensively with computer-based implant planning systems. This has resulted in the use of several drill-guide systems and navigation systems for implant placement. His special field of interest is the atrophic maxilla and treatment with zygomatic and pterygoid implants. Dr. Vrielinck has authored several peer-reviewed journal articles on the subject of guided implant placement. He also conducts zygoma implant courses on a regular basis.
