Abstract: Head and neck cancer is a group of cancers that affects the oropharynx, nasopharynx, laryngopharynx and neck. With improving survival rates for patients, general dental practitioners (GDPs) are becoming increasingly likely to engage in the care of affected patients. Therefore, a sound clinical knowledge of the aetiology, treatment and rehabilitation for head and neck cancer is essential for all practitioners who may be involved in the care pathways for such patients.

Clinical relevance: This paper provides an update on the prevalence, risk factors, diagnosis and classification of head and neck cancer.

During this webinar Eoin O’Sullivan will take you through his personal journey with digital scanning, explaining how he found himself in a dilemma when he had to replace his first iTero, after he had assumed that the scanner’s capabilities would transition to focus on orthodontics when it was bought out by Align Technology in March 2011. He will share his thoughts about which scanner would best suit his restorative practice, and why he opted for the next generation of iTero over all the other scanners on the market.
