This service is facilitated by using a range of digital records such as CBCT scans in conjunction with virtual implant planning software, intraoral scans, 3D facial scanning, Modjaw acquisitions of real-time jaw movement, 3D printing of surgical guides and guided navigation. Restorations are in the main then provided utilising intraoral scanning technology and CAD CAM laboratory solutions.
