Chairside protocol for posterior single-unit implant restorations in a complete digital workflow
Aim: Introduction of a step-wise sequence for chairside treatment with a posterior single-unit implant restoration in a complete digital workflow.
Materials and Methods: The case report describes the surgical and prosthodontic workflows for the rehabilitation with an implant crown using Computer-Assisted Implant Dentistry (CAID): starting with digital data acquisition and virtual treatment planning, followed by guided implant placement including digital impression-taking, and finally CAD/CAM-processing and -production of the implant crown.
Results: The entire treatment protocol plus technical work steps are integrated in a validated seamless process using original-to-original implant components for in-house production.
Conclusions: Surgical and prosthodontic protocols for the treatment with monolithic implant crowns using CAID in a complete digital workflow without any physical models have to be considered in place of conventional manufacturing.
PlumX Metrics provide insights into the ways people interact with individual pieces of research output (articles, conference proceedings, book chapters, and many more) in the online environment. Examples include, when research is mentioned in the news or is tweeted about. Collectively known as PlumX Metrics, these metrics are divided into five categories to help make sense of the huge amounts of data involved and to enable analysis by comparing like with like.
