Title: Digital workflow of implant-supported reconstruction for edentulous patients.


In the presentation, the multimoding digital information of the edentulous patient was merged for the design of the prosthesis, and the workflow of treatments was modified based on the virtual design. With the CAD/CAM and 3-D printing available, digital design of the final prosthesis can be turn to the real before implant operation. Based on digital techniques, prosthetic-driven concept and closed cycle solution for implant-supported reconstruction for edentulous patients were well discussed.
