White Paper

Using a 3D Printed Surgical Guide for Implant Placement in a Partial Edentulism Case

This clinical case study, will give a step-by-step overview of how to produce an in-house surgical (implantology) guide in a rehabilitation case with partial edentulism by using CAD/CAM technology.

Setting New Standards of Care

The introduction of digital technologies in the dental field, such as 3D printing, are setting new standards of care. Clinicians have more autonomy on the processes and instruments they use and the communication with dental laboratories becomes faster and more efficient. Digital independence is supported by truly open standardized user interfaces. Accurate surgical planning and simulation are complemented by in-house 3D printing, which enables a predictable and exact end result.

Treatment and Surgical Procedure

Treatment Plan
The rehabilitation process consisted of two main phases, shown below.
Phase One: Surgical Phase
• Impressions
• Teeth cleaning
• Digital planning of the implant placement and fabrication of the surgical guide
• Placement of the implants (24, 27) using a drilling template/surgical guide
