This case demonstrates the integration of data files acquisition with intraoral or extraoral optical surface scans combined with CBCT (DICOM files), digital smile and prosthetic design software (CAD design).
Treatment provider: Dr. Theodoros Tasopoulos, Dr. Dimitrios Karasoulos, Ioannis Tampakos, CDT.
The case illustrates how the combination of computer guided implantology together with CAD-CAM systems provides a minimally invasive approach to full arch treatment and avoiding extensive grafting procedures.
PREVIEW OF THE CASE
The advantages of the digital workflow as demonstrated in this case and according to Dr. Tasopoulos:
Implant positions are planned virtually based on the bony substrate and guided by the desired prosthetic design.
The clinical significance of staged approach includes the elimination of the need for removable prostheses and maximization of patient comfort.
All information needed to process provisional and definite implant restorations can be derived from the initial digital wax up, by incorporating DSD and face scan software.
