Sample case & video

We just completed the final step of a challenging retreatment of a failed zirconia anterior implant😥

The implant uncovering of the BLT implant was planned for same day insertion of a 3D printed single tooth immediate temporary on a 2 mm Titanium Variobase.

1) BLT implant uncovering
2) 3shape implant impression
3) Digital design of subgingival emergence profile and single tooth anatomy
4) 3D printed temporary with GC Temp
4) Polishing and coloring
5) Cementation of Variobase to Temporary
6) Verify fit and delivery of 3D printed Temporary

Total Treatment time: 2 hours

Every step was done in our office with @drsaschajovanovic and the Straumann digital workflow and P30 printer. Design, printing and coloring of temporary by our technician @raffiaghvinian and team (Natura-Like lab).

Impressive was the in office temporary workflow, perfect fit of the Temporary with no Adjustment, the guided soft tissue healing around the abutment 2 days after, the positive patient experience and the efficiency of the overall treatment.
