  • A CBCT scan and a digital impression of the patient's existing dentition can be merged in a prosthetic-driven implant planning module.
  • A well-designed case assists the surgeon in countouring the emergence profile at implant placement.
  • Digital files can be used to mill a provisional restoration, customizing gingival former or healing abutment.

Accurate diagnosis and proper treatment planning are key when it comes to successful implant placement. A design that begins with the end result in mind is important as well. A well-designed case, in addition to a well-designed provisional, assists the surgeon in optimizing implant position and also allows us to start contouring the emergence profile at implant placement.

Bart W. Silverman, DMD, guides the reader through a case demonstrating these aspects of digital dental technology focused on the prosthetic outcome.
