Practising Implant Dentistry and Self Directed Learning

Digital clinical photography is a powerful tool in implant dentistry. It is invaluable for both documentation and communication between all parties to dental treatment including patients, laboratory technicians, and colleagues. Modern digital photography is user-friendly for dentists and allows rapid transfer of information. This Learning Pathway describes a suitable camera setup for digital clinical photography and explains its use in daily practice. Clinical cases demonstrate the use of clinical photography in case reports.
