Russo Seminars, Hands-on cadaver courses with Dr.John Russo
 The Speakers

Dr. John Russo will cover the new X-Mark workflow and the importance of soft tissue management and how navigation allows for creating the ideal emergence profile with anatomically shaped healing abutments, custom healing abutments and immediate provisionals. Dr. Russo will perform a live surgery including making an X-Clip, taking a CBCT and intra oral scan, importing both the CBCT and intra oral scans into the X-Guide for prosthetically driven implant planning and perform the surgery to navigate the implant precisely and accurately. In addition, Dr. Russo will scan the digital impression scan body to send to the lab for the final restoration.
Dr. Robert Emery will cover the new advancements in full arch navigation for terminal and fully edentulous patients using X-mark virtual registration and the new EDX screws and arms attachment system. Dr. Emery's presentation will include full arch planning including the dual scan technique, ridge reduction and EDX screw placement and will conclude with a full arch live surgery with immediate navigated prosthesis.
Dr. Robert Pauley will cover the digital workflow from single to full arch cases. His lecture will show how the connection of digital information of CBCT, intra oral scan, digital pictures/smile design works in conjunction with the lab and dynamic navigation. Case reviews will include full arch, immediate full arch and dual immediate full arch with a hybrid prosthesis.
Steven Balshi CDT (live virtual presentation) will lecture on navigated prosthetics. His lecture will cover the complete workflow from planning to immediate pick up for his ultimate conversion denture for dynamic navigation.
