Online Article: Virtual Simulation of Periodontal Surgery Including Presurgical CAD/CAM Fabrication of Tooth-Colored Removable Splints on the Basis of CBCT Data: A Case Report

Innovative digital diagnostic, design, and manufacturing technologies combined with high-performance polymers offer new possibilities to facilitate complex interdisciplinary treatment procedures. This article reports on the interaction of different digital technologies, from presurgical digital simulation of periodontal surgery to final prosthodontic rehabilitation, in a case of amelogenesis imperfecta in a 17-year-old girl. The aim was to digitally determine the treatment outcome by three-dimensional simulation of the soft tissue removal and to create computer-aided design/computer-assisted manufacture tooth-colored splints before the clinical treatment. The case report shows the synergy of the combination of multiple digital technologies for a predictable periodontal and prosthetic treatment outcome.
