Michael D. Meyer: Digital diagnostics and efficiency in workflow. What does this mean for final outcomes?

The use of NobelClincian digital diagnostics enables planning full arch dental implant treatments, such as the All-on-4® treatment concept, by beginning with the final prosthetic outcome in mind. This digital precision can reduce risk and improve predictability by allowing the clinician to identify vital structures and achieve optimal implant placement prior to surgery. Once digital diagnostics are completed, confirmation of surgical protocol can follow with implant placement surgery being undertaken either free-hand, guided pilot drill or fully guided. The newly developed guided pilot drill provides the benefit of guided surgery while still allowing the clinician the flexibility of full flap reflection for surgical access to osseous structures while preserving overlying soft tissue.
Dr Danesh-Meyer completed his Bachelors Degree in Dental Surgery and Masters in Degree in Periodontology (with Distinction) from University of Otago, New Zealand. He was a Senior Clinical Lecturer at University of Otago and in full-time private practice limited to dental implants and periodontics prior to taking up a position as Clinical Assistant Professor in Periodontology at Temple University in Philadelphia from 1998-2000. He has been involved in preclinical and clinical research involving GTR/GBR, rhBMP-2 and dental implants and authored numerous articles and lectured both nationally and internationally on these subjects. In 2000 he established the Institute of Dental Implants & Periodontics and the Auckland Clinical Training Centre in Auckland, New Zealand. Dr Danesh-Meyer is a member of the Royal Australiasian College of Dental Surgeons, Fellow of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists, Lectures for gIDE/LLU Masters program and is actively involved in teaching periodontics and implant dentistry.
