Benefits of guided surgery and the digital workflow
Dr. Tan presents three different types of cases that demonstrate the advantages of guided surgery and digital workflows.
Treatment provider: Dr. Philip Tan
Solutions used: 3Shape TRIOS intraoral scanner, 3Shape Implant Studio software, 3Shape Dental System
The three cases are: upper lateral incisor replacement; upper central incisor teeth replacement; replacement of teeth #46 and #47
PREVIEW OF THE CASE
Implant planning based on IO and CBCT data. The cases illustrate the importance of driving the implant planning process using 3Shape Implant Studio, the TRIOS intraoral scanner, and a CBCT scanner.
Surgical guide design. 3Shape Implant Studio enables the local production of the guides and a full integration with 3Shape Dental System for restorative design and production.
Benefits for my patients. Reduction in the number of patient visits as there is no longer a separate scan for radiographic templates.
Benefits as a practitioner. Excellent outcome due to simplified restoration construction with correct contours and structure. The ability to construct provisionals prior to implant placement or the construction of custom healing abutments for control of soft tissue contours from the time of implant placement.
