Prosthetic rehabilitation in atrophic jaws using dental implants represents a challenge for any clinicians. Factors that are potential sources of complications are bone quality, soft tissue management and anatomical variables. In order to have a long‐term outcome and benefit for the patient, the treatment plan should consider all these difficulties and variables. With the introduction of three dimensional (3D) diagnostic imaging and treatment planning technologies in implant dentistry, the preparation and placement of dental implants has become the norm in quality patient care, especially in patients with severe atrophies. Guided implant surgery has helped facilitate, simplify, and overcome the most common challenges in dental implant therapy. Modern implant softwares are able to reconstruct anatomical areas in 3D allowing clinicians to virtually plan implant placement from CT or cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) scan.
In today’s practice, CAD/CAM technology is frequently a foundational element of an integrated digital workflow for dental implant placement and restoration. This technology includes an intraoral scanning system, cone beam computed tomography (CBCT), implant planning software, and CAD/CAM design and milling software and hardware.
The convenience, time saving and efficiency of designing and fabricating a solution that can quickly and easily be modified or replicated on site are just a few of the advantages of using CAD/CAM dentistry. Specifically, this type of approach enables clinicians to operate difficult cases with a minimally invasive approach, with a prosthetic restoration, that has a predictable success rate.
