Looking for help documenting a case.
Hi guys. Posting for the first time and I'm really excited to work on this case! Dr Garber and Klien presented a full day course on implant placement and restoring a single tooth this past Thursday using 3 Shape. I want to present something similar using Sirona.
I had a patient come in on Monday with fractured lingual cusp #12 below the gum line. At this point there is no pain and she is heading out of town. I was able to bond the mobile cusp to the rest of the tooth and will be taking a CT when she returns. (Just ordered the Orthophos SL on Feb 1st so it will hopefully come in this month). I scaned the tooth with the Cerec so I have a record of her original tooth morphology and position. My plan is to take the CT, merge the info with the optical surface scan, plan the implant position exactly where it needs to be, mill a surgical guide with the Cerec, extract the tooth (maybe socket shield technique?), and place the implant. Ultimately, I plan to mill her final restoration to the exact specs of where her current tooth is. I feel this case can teach both the evolving digital world of dentistry and also demonstrate careful extraction and implant placement techniques.
I have never documented a case like this before so all help is appreciated. Here are a few pictures I've taken so far.
