Are you interested in making your own occlusal guards or bite appliances using digital technology such as scanning and 3D Printing? Are you interested in making your guards fit better, faster, and easier?
This course covers the essentials of what you, your assistants, and your laboratory needs to know about scanning, designing, and 3D printing for occlusal guards! We cover the step by step protocols using intraoral and optical scanning techniques, software design the guards, 3D printing techniques, finishing and polishing techniques, and the clinical procedures for delivering the guard. We teach using low-cost, desktop grade 3D printers that can produce occlusal guards for a fraction of what they cost from the lab!
Included is up to 3CEU of AGD PACE continuing education credit.
This course utilizes learning skills and educational content that is 20% projection slides and 80% video-based education. We emphasize simulated “LIVE” video based techniques to demonstrate the use of scanners, printers, software, and surgical guide fabrication and demonstration.
