Digital Workflow for Implant Rehabilitation with Double Full‐Arch Monolithic Zirconia


Now online in the Journal of Prosthodontics, Drs. Papaspyridakos, Chochlidakis, Kang, Chen, Alghfeli, Kudara, and Weber report on a proof-of-concept protocol with a double digital scanning (DDS) technique for a complete digital workflow in double full-arch implant rehabilitation.

Two patients were treated in 4 appointments with a prosthodontic protocol and monolithic zirconia prostheses through a complete digital workflow and were observed for a 2-year period.

The only reported complications were a clicking sound upon function in one patient, which improved over time, and localized peri-implant soft tissue recession around few multi-unit abutments.

The authors conclude that this new DDS technique can simplify full-mouth implant rehabilitation and reduce chairside time and clinical appointments.
