A clinical protocol for intraoral digital impression of screw-retained CAD/CAM framework on multiple implants based on wavefront sampling technology


Moreno, Angel; Giménez, Beatriz; Özcan, Mutlu; Pradíes, Guillermo (2013). A clinical protocol for intraoral digital impression of screw-retained CAD/CAM framework on multiple implants based on wavefront sampling technology. Implant Dentistry, 22(4):320-325.

Abstract

PURPOSE: To obtain an accurate CAD/CAM metal framework over 6 implants using a Chairside Intraoral Scanner based on the principle of active (optical) wavefront sampling.
MATERIAL AND METHODS: Six prototype cylindrical scan bodies screwed in the implants were used to obtain an intraoral digital impression. A conventional resin tooth try-in was fabricated and digitized with an extraoral scanner, and this dataset was merged to the digital data obtained from the intraoral impression to calculate the best framework design with advanced CAD software. The framework was fabricated with a 5-axis computer numerical control milling unit. Three clinical tests (saliva intrusion, Sheffield test, and screw resistance test) were performed to assess the fit of the framework.
RESULTS: Under 3 clinical tests, an accurate fit was observed.
CONCLUSION: The case presented in this report proposes a new clinical protocol for obtaining accurate digital impressions of multiple implants.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
