In the past, the result of dental implant treatment could be evaluated only when the restorative, functional, and esthetic results were successful over time. Intraoral digital impression scans, computer-aided design and manufacture, and cone beam radiography can now be coordinated with interactive software to expedite our treatment goals. These technologies can reduce the number of treatment visits and improve the clinician’s control over the restoration’s accuracy and esthetic potential.
