How can we minimize treatment planning errors and maximizing the prosthetic and esthetic outcome? Recent advances in digital applications have focused on the integration of the diagnostic phase, surgical implant placement and prosthetic reconstruction. 3D radiographic data sets, collected prior to treatment initiation, can be fused with digital data sets representing the intra-oral situation and the desired final prosthetic reconstruction. Thus, crucial information is available to assist with a correct diagnosis, formulation of a treatment plan and surgical and prosthetic execution. Dr Wöhrle reviews, how digital data acquisition and planning can help to establish and maximize the potential outcome, and identify potential treatment limitations, and discusses the incorporation of innovative surgical and prosthetic solutions into the planning process, such as NobelParallel™ CC and NobelActive® WP implants, the full contour zirconia crown and the NobelProcera® ASC Abutment Zirconia.
