The advent of CAD-CAM technology and its ever-growing optimization has rapidly caught the attention of the dental community for its potential applications. Specifically in the implant dentistry field, 3D imaging based diagnostics and treatment planning are becoming part of the routine clinical armamentarium. This technology can provide benefits in terms of precision and a subsequent development of a treatment strategy, from the surgical planning to the design and fabrication of the final restorative hardware. An accurate and predictable placement of dental fixtures according to a computer generated treatment plan can reduce surgical complications and provide minimally invasive alternatives to “conventional” open flap surgical implant placement. Several diagnostic and treatment related CAD-CAM software/production systems are currently available in the market and have been made available for the private practitioner.
