Single implant — upper premolar replacement using digital workflow

3Shape Implant Studio provides accurate and optimized positioning and visualization tools to create a virtual wax-up set for the 3D placement of the implant.
  • Treatment provider: Dr. Nelson Silva
  • Solutions used: 3Shape TRIOS intraoral scanner, 3Shape Implant Studio + 3Shape Dental System software
  • Dr. Silva uses 3Shape Implant Studio and 3Shape Dental System for predictably positioning the implant and restoration and for manufacture of the prosthesis.


  • Prosthetic driven implant planning. Planning the prosthetic initially, guides both the planning of the implant position and subsequent design of the surgical guide.
  • Surgical guide design. The surgical guide is designed and sent (STL format) to be prototyped, milled or 3D printed.
  • Checking fit and function prior to production. The crown is virtually placement and digitally adjusted for proximal and occlusal contacts before milling.
  • Restoration seated. The similarity of restored crown compared to the second premolar, illustrates the software’s capacity to mimic anatomical details.
