  • Mountain West Dental Institute

Mariano Polack, DDS, MS.


The fixed rehabilitation of fully edentulous implant patients can be a demanding task.  In particular, the selection of restorative materials can be confusing for clinicians, given the number of new and previously existing options available. Also, until now, intraoral scanners have not been accurate enough to support a full-arch digital workflow without verification. This results in additional clinical steps, reducing efficacy, efficiency and profitability.

This presentation will focus on the material selection for fixed full-arch implant rehabilitations and their digital workflows. Advantages, disadvantages, and potential complications of various restorative options and novel materials will be discussed. Strategies to improve the behavior of different “hybrid prostheses” options will be addressed. Innovative technology that incorporates a fast, easy-to-follow digital workflow, that allows clinicians to complete a full-arch fixed implant rehabilitation in just two appointments using any intraoral scanner will also be presented.



• Identify factors to consider in the material selection for full-arch fixed implant Prostheses.

• Understand the most common complications of various full arch “hybrid” restorations and learn how to improve their behavior.

• Demystify beliefs that may affect the selection of materials in full-arch implant

• Become familiar with new intraoral scanning technology that will challenge traditional full-arch digital workflows.

• Learn how a 2-3 appointment final, completely digital, full-arch fixed implant rehabilitation can be accomplished.
