Case Information

The 51-old female patient complained of the molar loss for half a year.
Diagnosis: No.47 tooth loss
Treatment: No.47 tooth implant, real-time temporary crown restoration and final restoration completed in three months.

Preoperative Examination

A dental cone beam CT X-Ray scan was performed before surgery. The result showed that the target location has enough bone mass for the implant.

Implant Surgery

Prepared the cavity, and embedded the Nobel CC 5.0x10mm implant.

Implant Surgery Completion

The implant was embedded in the correct location and was in a stable status at the initial period.

Scan Body Locating

Insert the sterilized scan body in the patient’s mouth, and make sure that it was correctly and completely located. An X-ray examination can be used when necessary.

How To Sterilize Scan Bodies?

  1. Soak the scan body in liquid disinfectant for 5 minutes.
  2. Put the scan body in a sterilized vacuum bag.
  3. Sterilize the bag in the disinfection cabinet under 121℃ and 1.5 atmospheric pressure for 15 minutes.

Intraoral Scanning

Use Shining 3D Aoralscan to scan the intraoral environment of the patient, which took about 7 minutes.

Healing Abutment Wearing

After scanning, put the healing abutment in the mouth while the temporary crown is being made.

Postoperative CT Examination

After surgery, a dental cone beam CT X-Ray scan was performed. The result showed that the implant was embedded correctly.

Intraoral Data Import into Exocad for Design

Import the intraoral data into Exocad and check the job definition.

Scan Body Matching

Selecte the corresponding implant type in exocad and match the scan body position.

Temporary Crown Design

Design the temporary crown and the gingiva contact as required in exocad.

Design Completion

Complete the design of temporary crown in exocad.

CAM Data Planning

Import the temporary crown CAD data into the CAM software and export the milling data after planning.

CNC Milling

It took about 20 minutes to mill the crown.

Milling Completion

Finish resin crown milling, stick the crown onto the base and implant temporary crown was formed.


Try the temporary crown in the patient’s mouth. The X-ray examination result indicated correct crown location, suitable abutment, and slightly contacted occlusion. During the period of temporary resin crown, gingiva was remodeled for further restoration.

What’re the Benifits of Chairside Temporary Implant Restoration Solution with Aoralscan?

  • 1-day efficiency. It only takes 1-1.5 hrs to create a temporary crown using the chairside digital way. The patient can wear the temporary crown after implant surgery on the same day!
  • Better experience for the patient. Aoralscan, with no powder needed, takes only 5-7 mins to scan the mouth relieving the patient of the discomfort of traditional physical impression molding.
  • Good for the implant result. The patient can wear the temporary crown right away, which is good for the gingiva rebuilding and leads to a better implant restoration result.
  • Easy operation for the dentist. It’s much easier for the dentist/assistant to get the digital impression with Aoralscan than to get a physical impression in a traditional way. Good for patient-dentist communication.
  • Good for the patient-dentist communication. Realistic 3D intraoral data is a great tool for the patient to understand the situation and the treatment plan which improves patient-dentist relationships.
