Computer-Guided Implant Placement: 3D Planning Software, Fixed Intraoral Reference Points, and CAD/CAM Technology. A Case Report

Ali Tahmaseb /Renaat De Clerck /Daniel Wismeijer


PMID: 19587879

The aim of this article is to explain the use of a computer-aided three-dimensional planning protocol in combination with previously placed mini-implants and computer-aided design/computer-assisted manufacture (CAD/CAM) technology to restore a completely edentulous patient. Mini-implants were used to establish a setup for computerized tomographic imaging and a surgical template. The software and its three-dimensional simulation allowed the authors to plan ideal implant placement, digitally integrating the future prosthetic and anatomic situations to design the definitive superstructure. The CAD/CAM superstructure is produced digitally with a precise fit and occlusion and good esthetics, and is placed immediately after surgery. Int J Oral Maxillofac Implants 2009;24:541546
