Prosthetic driven implant placement requires a planning procedure, which considers the available bone and the optimal prosthetic position of the crown. In our days more and more CT-based planning procedures are used, especially for very esthetic demanding cases or if immediate restoration is performed. Different techniques to show the prosthetic situation are published like using BaSO4-doted resin.

Material und Methods

For the CT-based planning we use routinely a wax-up, which is transferred in acrylic resin (80 weight % polymer and 20 weight % BaSO4). If the position of the template during CT-scan cannot be fixed definitely a fixation with a small osseosynthesis screw is performed under local anesthesia. For the reference of the prosthetic axis a gutta-percha point ISO 100 is used, which is placed in the center of the crown. For the optimal vertical position the length of the gutta-percha point is chosen in the same length like the cone of the esthetic abutment (FRIADENT, Mannheim, Germany). Depending to the transfer system for surgery different references are necessary. After the CT-scan the template is modified according the surgical transfer system.

Implant planning based on the ideal position of the prosthetic cone of the abutment allows determining the ideal position of the implant under prosthetic considerations.
