I must be losing it but I can’t find the surgical pictures on this case. This was done free hand as I was out of CEREC Guide 2 blocks and just seemed a shame to pay the big bucks for a single unit Digital guide. Treatment planned a 5.2 by 10 mm Legacy Implant.
And this is the reason why I love guided and kick myself for doing some cases non guided. Its that back and forth with angulation or spacing with angulation pins. Hate it! Patient walked out with a 5mm cylindrical healing cap and then we replaced it with a Contour Healer about 2 weeks ago.
By now I am sure everyone knows the cut technique to get into the contacts. Scan the gingival mask first then copy into the lower or upper prep model then cut out the area for the scan post making sure you get the base and the sides of the scan post. This is a 4.5 mm Legacy Implant and we will use a 4.5 TSV ti base.
I don’t know about you but even with an occlusal offset of 250 I am still having high occlusion on my abutments. Weird! You can see what a grinder this guy is. “Analog Milled” my “chicken foot” anatomy with a carbide 557 bur with tons of water.
Over all an “OK” result. I would have liked to be about 1mm more lingual with my access but I am sure it will be fine and any screw loosening due to the off axis is no big thang due to the fact that its screw retained. Chicken foot anatomy looks better with stain.
