  • Treatment provider: Dr. Nawakamon Suriyan
  • Solutions used: 3Shape TRIOS intraoral scanner, 3Shape Implant Studio + 3Shape Dental System software
  • Using a prosthetic-driven workflow (3Shape Implant Studio) ensures proper depths and angulations.


  • Treatment options. The patient is given two treatment options: 1) 3-unit fixed prosthodontic using teeth #14, #22 and #23 as abutments; #2)Implant restoration for the replacement of the edentulous space at teeth #13, #11, #21 and #22.
  • Implant planning based on IO and CBCT data. Surface and CBCT scans merged in software for planning and design and production of tooth-supported surgical guide.
  • Benefits of guided surgery. Guided surgery technique and immediate functional loading help to create a more predictable procedure. The result is less postoperative morbidity, due to the surgery being minimally invasive.
  • Patient benefits. Patient satisfaction increased due to immediate provisionalization and an aesthetic and functional restoration.
