CAD/CAM-Polymers as Innovative Pre-treatment Option for Complex Rehabilitations
Digital technologies offer access to more diagnostic information and enable a higher predictability. With the transfer into monolithic polymer materials innovative options for the clinical evaluation of esthetics and function are available. CAD/CAM-fabricated bi-maxillary splints allow to exploring the final treatment goal in reversible test drives. Based on removability of the splints, surgical, periodontal, and restorative pre-treatments can be integrated in this period. The transfer into definitive restorations can be divided into multiple treatment steps minimizing risk factors of complex rehabilitations.
