An example of digital implantology

Learn how to combine CBCT and intraoral surface scan data with CAD software for diagnosis, treatment planning, execution and provision of restorative treatment.

Highlights from the case

In this case, the team uses a 3Shape TRIOS scanner with 3Shape Implant Studio software as the foundation, which can be used to plan treatment and make surgical guides.

Combine scans

Intraoral scans and a CBCT scan were superimposed to plan implant placement from a restorative perspective.

Surgical guide

The doctors designed a surgical guide based on the desired implant position to ensure the correct placement.


Five implant fixtures were placed using a fully guided surgical protocol.


3D-printed temporary restorations were placed over the implants to protect them and the gums during healing.
