CAD/CAM restoration workflow

WHAT ARE THE STEPS OF PREPARING A CAD/CAM RESTORATION?

Note: This guide does not replace proper education and training in CAD/CAM restorations.

A. SCAN

  1. Manually connect the scan abutment or bodies to the implant or the screw-retained P64, P14 or P16 abutment. Alternatively, connect to their analogs in the model.
  2. Scan intra-orally using an intra-oral scanner or scan the casted/printed model using a tabletop scanner.
  3. Check the scanning result for missing areas, and rescan if needed. Send the scanning data (STL file) to the dental lab.


B. DESIGN

  1. Send the created prosthetic job/work file to CAM software, and manufacture the prosthetic job/work.
  2. Optional: Print the plastic model (alternative to a cast model) and install the required digital analog.
  3. Check the final work restoration on the model (cast or printed) and correct as needed.


C. PRODUCE

  1. Upload the scanning data to the dedicated CAD/CAM design software, and choose the desired restoration components from the AB Dental library (scan abutment/body, Ti-base abutment, or adhesive sleeve).
  2. Design the desired restoration and create a job/work file.
  3. Optional: in case needed – design a printed plastic model, using our dedicated digital model analog libraries.


D. INSTALL

  1. Glue the Ti-base abutments or adhesive sleeve into the crown or bridge restoration components (final prosthetic parts).
  2. Connect the final restoration to the patient mouth.
  3. Retouch and finish.
