As digital technology increasingly permeates the usage of dentistry, intraoral digital impression scanning is developing rapidly, intraoral scanner can make the capture of digital impressions faster and easier than traditional impression, this case report describes the use of Aoralscan 3 from SHINING3D to capture teeth, gingiva and scanbody for a case of immediate implants and immediate loading of anterior teeth.
The patient in this case was a 65-year-old man who presented with a four-unit fixed prosthesis with the maxillary incisor; in addition, patient had serious alveolar bone resorption and gingiva atrophy. dentist plan to remove the bridge and extract tooth #11, #12, #22, then immediately place implants and make new restoration.
Remove the old bridge and extract tooth #11, #12, #22.
Immediately place implants on tooth position #12, #22.
After surgery, we can immediately scan with Aoralscan 3 (Intraoral scanner from SHINING3D) to get the digital impression for subsequent restoration and model creation.
Scan upper arch without scanbody. Less chair time, no need for distasteful impression materials that cause some patients to gag. but more comfortable, less anxious experience for patient.
Insert scanbody and scan the upper arch again with scanbody. We can see that scanbodycan be captured accurately and rapidly.
Scan lower arch as antagonist.
Scan the bite. Then we will get the complete impression, which significantly increase efficiency, productivity and accuracy. Next, dentist can email the digital impression to the laboratory, rather than send a traditional impression tray via logistics.
Design restoration & models base on the digital impression, then print the models with AccuFab-D1s, and try the restoration on the printed model.
Finally, try the restoration in patient’s mouth and finish cementation, here is the result of new restoration, patient is very happy not only for the result of new bridge but also for the experience of taking impression.
