The initial case assessment, planning, and making a surgical guide in the digital implant workfow poses a different challenges. We breaks down each step of the digital CAD design workflow, to give you a better understanding of implant treatment plan…
- Cemented and Screw retained implant
- Single implant
- All on 4/6 implant
CAD technology allows dental professionals to digitally design the implant-supported restorations with precision and accuracy.
The process typically involves the following steps:
Digital scanning: The dentist or a dental technician uses an intraoral scanner to capture detailed 3D images of the patient’s oral structures, including the dental implant site and surrounding teeth.
Virtual design: Using specialized CAD software, the dental professional designs the restoration based on the patient’s specific needs and anatomical considerations. The software allows for precise customization of the size, shape, and position of the restoration.
Digital simulation: The CAD software can simulate the fit and functionality of the restoration within the patient’s mouth. This helps ensure proper occlusion (bite) and aesthetics before the physical fabrication.
Fabrication: Once the virtual design is finalized, the CAD data is sent to a computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) system or a dental laboratory. The restoration is milled or 3D-printed from high-quality dental materials such as ceramics, zirconia, or titanium.
Delivery and placement: After the fabrication process is complete, the dental professional places the implant-supported restoration onto the dental implant or abutment. They ensure proper fit, alignment, and aesthetics before securing it in place.
Implant dental CAD design restoration offers several benefits, including improved accuracy, faster turnaround time, and enhanced aesthetics compared to traditional manual methods. It allows for precise customization to match the patient’s unique dental anatomy, resulting in optimal function and natural-looking results.
