Surgical and prosthetic dental rehabilitation through a complete digital workflow - A case report
Tsirogiannis, Panagiotis / Pieger, Sascha / Pelekanos, Stavros / Kourtis, Stefanos
Several aspects of digital dentistry have recently been improved, including new materials, navigated implant placement, digital impression in combination with virtual articulation, and the computer-aided processes of designing and manufacturing of prosthetic restorations. In this case report, the prosthodontic treatment of a patient through a complete digital workflow is presented. A 39-year-old male patient presented for restoration of missing teeth in the posterior maxilla and mandible. In a single-tooth narrow gap (region 15), a Straumann NNC implant was placed by computer-assisted planning and navigation. For the rest of the missing teeth, ZrO2 fixed dental prostheses (FDPs) were manufactured by a computer-aided design/computer- aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) system after optical impression with an intraoral scanner (iTero), and data transferal to a virtual articulator (Ceramill Artex). Rehabilitation through a complete digital workflow is a promising technology in terms of accuracy, reduced workload, greater control over the final product, and minimally invasive procedures. These advantages may have a potential positive effect with regard to patient satisfaction compared with conventional methods.
