BASEL, Switzerland: Straumann has launched another season of StraumannPLAY. The second season focuses on digital workflows. In this new season, Dr Hugo Madeira, founder of the advanced implantology clinic Clínica de Implantologia Avançada in Lisbon in Portugal, takes the audience on a five-part journey in digital dentistry.

Digital workflows offer dental professionals accuracy and reliability and save a considerable amount of time. This means higher levels of comfort for patients. In the new StraumannPLAY season, Madeira delves into how dental professionals can manage these workflows and discusses the essential tools for successful treatments. Each 10-minute episode provides a glimpse into a specific topic, such as intra-oral scanning or the perfect smile. The first episode of Season 2 examines the rapid adoption of the intra-oral scanner in practices in order to replace conventional impressions or models. In the second episode, Madeira explains how, why and when dentists should use a surgical guide. The following episodes will cover “Designing and printing the surgical guide”, “How to plan a smile” and “Prosthetic design and milling”.

StraumannPLAY, which is created by peers for peers, was launched last year as a means of sharing content on dentistry and beyond. The platform meets a growing need and interest in easily accessible content and formats. It is ideal for mobile devices when on the go. Season 1, titled “Digital for your dental practice”, was a major success, registering close to 3,000 views and counting.
