Jan-Frederik Güth (Dr. med. dent.) holds the position of Deputy Director of the Department of Prosthodontics of the Dental School of the Ludwig-Maximilians University Munich and Vice President of the German Association of Dental Technology (ArbeitsgemeinschaftDentale Technologie). Dr. Güth defended his “Habilitation” in 2014 and received the title “Privatdozent”. During 2013 he spent a research-stay (visiting professor) at the University of Southern California (USC; Pascal Magne). He is a member of the German Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Medicine (DGZMK), the German Association of Prosthetics and Bio-Materials (DG-Pro) and the German Association of Implantology (DGI). His main field of attention and research is the digital impression technology and the connected workflow on teeth and implants, CAD/CAM-technology, and high-performance polymers. In this field, he is an internationally noted lecturer and published numerous scientific and clinical articles.

Digital Biomimetics – Concepts for Predictive Treatments

In the dental world currently two megatrends are in focus – one is the digital revolution in technology – the other one is the minimal invasive “close-to-nature-dentistry”. On the first glance, these two developments seem to contradict each other. However looking closer, dentists, dental technicians and patients can find an enormous potential of synergies: Digital technology offers great tools, to get closer to nature-imitating restorations and to respect biological principles. The presentation discusses the application of up-to-date technology, like intraoral scanners, 3D face-scanners, innovative CAD/CAMmaterials and introduces new concepts and their integration into our daily workenvironment. One emphasis on which the presentation focuses is the extensive win of information and analysing methods due to digital technology that leads to more predictability regarding the treatment outcomes.
