Digitalization in dentistry in the time of CAD/CAM technologies reveals new possibilities for modern prosthodontics. The purpose of this lecture is to describe CAD/CAM protocol of 3D – guided planning for implant supported fixed prosthodontics. CAD/ CAM technologies in dental implantology are used for preliminary implant planning, surgical template design, 3D - guided surgery and fabrication of immediate and permanent implant-supported restorations. CAD/CAM applications in implant-supported fixed prosthodontics will be illustrated with own clinical cases made in the CAD/CAM center in the department of prosthetic dentistry, faculty of dental medicine, Medical University–Plovdiv, Bulgaria. Step-by-step full laboratory and clinical protocol of 3D - guided implant planning, surgical guide fabrication, implants placement and fabrication of implant-supported fixed restorations will be present. TRIOS, 3 shape intraoral scanner, 3 shape dental system, 3 shape implant studio software and CAM – 5 S2 impression, VHF were used for the clinical cases. Modern CAD/CAM technologies present opportunities for optimization of the clinical and laboratory work in fixed prosthodontics and implantology.
