Abstract

This article describes how to use CBCT and an intraoral scanner in a fully edentulous case that enables the clinician to place implants with flapless guided surgery and to engage prefabricated, customized implant abutments at the time of implant surgery, with only 1 clinical consultation before implant surgery. The patient's existing denture is used to simulate the teeth, the soft tissue and the vertical dimension of occlusion, and jaw relationship in the fully edentulous jaw. It provides clinicians with a fast workflow and improves clinical efficiency.
