Dr Peerapat Kaweewongprasert

Thai Prosthodontics Association

One treatment option for the prosthodontic reconstruction of a patient with a terminal dentition is an immediately functional full arch implant supported fixed prosthesis. Typically, after surgical extractions, alveoloplasty, and implant placement, the existing complete denture prosthesis is converted intra-orally to an immediate implant supported interim prosthesis. This conventional technique requires well-experienced team members including dental surgeon, prosthodontist, dental technician, and a significant amount of time for the surgical, prosthetic and laboratory procedures. To improve the overall treatment outcome, digital technology such as a cone beam-computed tomography (CBCT), computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) technology, 3D printing technology, facial scanner, and computer-guided implant surgical planning can be utilized. Utilizing these latest digital technologies assisting full arch implant rehabilitation resulted in a predictable treatment with less morbidity, less laboratory and clinical chair-time, and a substantial increase in patient satisfaction.
