Upper full arch rehabilitation using 3D printed temporary restorations

CBCT and intraoral surface scan (IOS) data are combined with CAD software to create diagnostic facially driven mock-ups, restoration-driven implant treatment planning and the design and fabrication of surgical guides.

  • Treatment provider: Dr. Anthony Mak
  • Solutions used: 3Shape TRIOS intraoral scanner, 3Shape Implant Studio software
  • Dr. Mak used digital software and tools to rehabilitate the upper arch with a combination of crowns and implant retained restorations


  • Implant planning based on IO and CBCT data. Intraoral surface scans before and after removal of the original PFM bridge are superimposed on the CBCT scan to facilitate the planning of implant placement from a restorative perspective.
  • Surgical guide design. Planning of implant placement. A surgical guide is designed based on the desired implant position.
  • Implant fixture placement. Five implant fixtures are placed using a fully guided surgical protocol.
  • Using 3D printed temps. Healing abutments removed and second set of temporary restorations placed.
