Application of Digital Diagnostic Impression, Virtual Planning, and Computer-Guided Implant Surgery for a CAD/CAM-fabricated, Implant-Supported Fixed Dental Prosthesis: A Clinical Report

Brandon M Stapleton et al. J Prosthet Dent.

Abstract

This clinical report demonstrated the use of an implant-supported fixed dental prosthesis fabricated with a contemporary digital approach. The digital diagnostic data acquisition was completed with a digital diagnostic impression with an intraoral scanner and cone-beam computed tomography with a prefabricated universal radiographic template to design a virtual prosthetically driven implant surgical plan. A surgical template fabricated with computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) was used to perform computer-guided implant surgery. The definitive digital data were then used to design the definitive CAD/CAM-fabricated fixed dental prosthesis.
