Digital technique for in vivo assessment of internal and marginal fit of fixed dental prostheses


Park, Ji-Man; Hämmerle, Christoph H F; Benic, Goran I (2017). Digital technique for in vivo assessment of internal and marginal fit of fixed dental prostheses. Journal of Prosthetic Dentistry, 118(4):452-454.

Abstract

Digital approaches to assess the misfit of fixed dental prostheses have been limited to in vitro evaluation. The present article describes a fully digital technique for the in vivo assessment of the fit of fixed dental prostheses by means of a chairside optical scanner and software for 3-dimensional (3D) analysis. The 3D digital capture is performed in 3 steps: an extraoral scan of the restoration, an intraoral scan of the abutment tooth, and an intraoral registration scan of the restoration positioned on the abutment tooth.
