  • Understand the fabrication of screw-retained restorations using the On1 Universal Abutment

Digital workflow for immediate tooth replacement
Dr. Alessandro Pozzi

  • Learn how the use of NobelClinician can simplify treatment planning

Master class - September 30

Time for this session: 12:30 p.m.–4:30 p.m.

The All-on-4® treatment concept and beyond
Dr. Armando Lopes

This master class will discuss goals in surgical and prosthodontic therapy for the fully edentulous patient when using the All-on-4® treatment concept. Clinical management of patients will be presented by demonstrating the data-gathering process, diagnosis, treatment planning, surgical protocols, and fabrication of both provisional and definitive implant-retained prosthesis.


Join us in learning protocols for the rehabilitation of patients with partial edentulism in the esthetic zone. Top experts will share their experiences in evidence-based treatment planning and in using digital tools, modern implant designs, and established surgical and restorative protocols. Discover the innovative prosthetic components that improve treatment outcomes.


Dr. Alessandro Pozzi

Prof. Alessandro Pozzi was formally trained in the inter-related areas of implant surgery, prosthodontics and laboratory technology. He personally performs both surgical and prosthetic parts of the implant treatment. His expertise focuses primarily on integrated digital workflow in implant dentistry, computer guided surgery and prosthodontics with CAD/CAM technology. He has been teaching both specialization courses and masters programs worldwide and in his own practice in Rome, as well as lecturing at several international congresses.

Prof. Tomas Albrektsson

Dr Albrektsson started working with osseointegrated implants together with professor P-I Brånemark in 1967. He has since published numerous papers on osseointegration. Currently, Dr Albrektsson is working as professor emeritus of the dept of Biomaterials in Gothenburg and as visiting professor at the department of prosthodontics, Malmö University Sweden.
