This is a detailed case-presentation that discusses diagnostic requirements for a complex transition from a failing dentition to implant restorations of crown and bridge designs. Discussion focuses on the difference between traditional all on X design and this more biologically sensible crown and bridge design.
CBCT, optical scanning and 3-d printing are utilized to allow immediate implantation and loading with a full arch bridge. The entire surgery is recorded in high resolution. A summary discussion follows that discusses post-operative management of this case.
