Implant placement is gaining acceptance as a treatment for missing teeth. This article provides a prosthodontist’s prospective on implant complications and states that “utilizing modern laboratory technology to create CAD/CAM restorations and employing such clinical technology as cone beam computed tomography (CBCT)-based virtual implant planning, stereolithographic-produced or milled surgical guides, and prefabricated provisional restorations can significantly reduce chair time and result in more cost-effective treatment with improved outcomes.” The article also encourages prosthodontists not familiar with these technologies to take steps to learn and integrate them into their clinical practice.
