I 25 case report _ guided surgery I CAD/CAM 3_2013 and 43, as well as a complete mandibular denture anchored by ball abutments (Figs. 1 & 2). After extensive counselling and discussion, we opted for a temporary fixed mandibular restora- tion on four implants with simultaneous explan- tation of the existing implants. Benefits of the selected restoration concept: _explantation, implantation and immediate resto- ration in one sitting; _a high level of safety owing to 3-D implant plan- ning; _durable temporary restoration with CAD/CAM high-performance plastic; _precision template-guided implantation with the CAMLOG Guide System; _high patient satisfaction with fixed screw-re- tained immediate restoration. _Pre-implantation planning Because the existing denture satisfied the basic aesthetic and functional requirements, the given situation was reproduced in plastic containing bar- ium sulphate according to backward planning. The desired prosthetic was fabricated from clear plastic withatitaniumreferencepinforthescanningtem- plate (Fig. 3). In order to make the prosthetic tooth axis visible in the CBCT scan, holes were drilled through the radiopaque teeth in the axis (Fig. 4). The DICOM data was then read into the coDiagnostiX implant planning system (Straumann). Computer-supported analysis offers the possibility of accurate diagnosis and planning the implants in agreement with anatomical and prosthetic require- ments (Figs. 5a & b).
