Abstract

Alveolar-ridge augmentation, anterior aesthetics, and digital technologies are probably the most popular topics in the dental-implant field. The aim of this report is to present a clinical case of severe atrophy of the anterior maxilla in a younger female patient, treated with a titanium membrane customized with computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM), simultaneous guided implant placement, and a fully digital workflow. A young female patient with a history of maxillary trauma was treated and followed-up for 1 year after implant placement. A narrow implant was inserted in a prosthetically driven position with the aid of computer-guided surgery. In the same surgical section, a customized implantable titanium mesh was applied. The scaffold was designed according to the contralateral maxillary outline in order to recreate a favorable maxillary bone volume. Finally, highly aesthetic, CAD/CAM, metal-free restorations were delivered using novel digital technologies.
