Abstract

An accurate implant placement with ideal location is significant for long-term success of the implant. An exact evaluation of nearby anatomic structures such as quality of residual bone, an inferior alveolar bone and a maxillary sinus is required. For a prosthetic-driven treatment, planned surgery, precise prosthesis and communication with the patient are significant requisites especially for full-mouth rehabilitation. In this case, the patient with severe alveolar bone resorption had a CT guided surgery supported by CT data and the data from scanning diagnostic wax-up. Afterward, edentulous area was restored by full mouth implant-supported prosthesis by using monolithic zirconia and CAD/CAM technique. This paper reports the outcome of the procedure which was remarkable both esthetically and functionally.
