Using a Modified Surgical Template and
Prototyping: A Case Report
Sérgio J. Jayme, DDS, MScD1/Valdir A. Muglia, DDS, MScD, DSc2/ Rafael R. de Oliveira, DDS, MScD3/Arthur B. Novaes Jr, DDS, MScD, DSc4 Immediate loading of dental implants shortens the treatment time and makes it possible to give thepatient an esthetic appearance throughout the treatment period. Placement of dental implantsrequires precise planning that accounts for anatomic limitations and restorative goals. Diagnosis canbe made with the assistance of computerized tomographic scanning, but transfer of planning to thesurgical field is limited. Recently, novel CAD/CAM techniques such as stereolithographic rapid proto-typing have been developed to build surgical guides in an attempt to improve precision of implantplacement. The aim of this case report was to show a modified surgical template used throughoutimplant placement as an alternative to a conventional surgical guide.

Furthermore, implant anchorage in thetotally edentulous maxilla is often restricted due tobone resorption, which is especially frequent in theposterior region of the maxillary arch, where bonegrafting is often indicated.
