Today, patients demand restoration that looks natural and this requirement has to be granted in the most simple, fast, accurate, and pain free way. The computer-guided implant surgery introduced the minimally invasive concept in the treatment of partial or totally edentulous patient, with new perspectives based on bone graft free rehabilitation and low morbidity implant surgery. Moreover with diagnostic data obtained from CBCT and extra- and intra-oral optical surface scanning a novel digital pathway based on facially driven virtual diagnostic waxing, prosthetically driven surgical plan, digitally printed surgical template, and prefabricated implant-supported screw-retained interim restorations, can be realized in a predicatable manner. The challenging interplay with the surrounding gingival framework, often overlooked in the extensive rehabilitation supported by tilted implants, will be emphasized through a step-by-step clinical protocol to deliver a natural gingival architecture and a direct pink-free prosthetic emergence.

Learning Objectives:

At completion of this presentation, participants should be able to: 

  1. Appreciate the benefits and disadvantages of using digitally guided surgery and prosthetics techniques
  2. Understand the use of raft free implant solutions based on tiliting implants
  3. Differentiate when immediate loading is feasible
  4. Manage the soft tissue interface in order to enhance the clinical outcome
