Digital workflow for the design and additively manufacture of a splinted framework and custom tray for the impression of multiple implants: A dental technique Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • This article describes a step-by-step digital protocol for the design and fabrication, through additive manufacturing, of a splinted framework and a custom tray for the impression of a complete-arch prosthesis supported by multiple implants. The protocol presented uses open source software to control the thicknesses of the custom tray, splinting material, and impression material during the procedure, reducing laboratory and chairside time and costs.
