Peter Wöhrle: Screw-retained provisionalization on the day of surgery – “shorter time to teeth”
- Increased efficiency and safety with guided surgery
- Screw-retained provisionals on the day of surgery
- Emerging technology general session
- Nobel Biocare New York Global Symposium 2016
Digital implant planning and placement is here to stay as it delivers more efficient care with consistently better outcomes, especially in the partially edentulous patient. Placing an implant that is “restorable” is no longer the aspiration. With today’s technology one can do better. Properly executed guided surgery combined with proper treatment planning elevates the level of excellence while increasing efficiency and safety. In this session novel extensions to the existing SmartFusion workflow are introduced with a focus on everyday executable protocols for screw-retained provisional’s on the day of surgery.
Dr. Peter Wöhrle received DMD and MMedSc (oral biology) degrees from Harvard University School of Dental Medicine, in addition to a specialty certificate in prosthodontics and a specialty certificate in implant dentistry. Prior to his studies in Boston, he completed a four-year dental technician program in Switzerland. At Harvard, he worked with others on developing the concept of Immediate Loading with Brånemark implants. Later, he applied these principles to the single tooth and the concept of immediate tooth replacement. He lectures worldwide, and his practice in Newport Beach, California, focuses exclusively on dental implants.
