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.
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.
PREVIEW OF THE CASE
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.
