The intraoral scanner has been widely used for implant impressions in partially edentulous cases. In this article, researchers present a technique to check the accuracy of the final prosthesis without the need for a conventional impression and final cast in a digital workflow.

This clinical report presents a technique to check the accuracy of intraoral scanning for complete-arch implant restorations using an implant index cast and a three-dimensional printed cast.

A clinical case of immediate loading on a maxillary edentulous patient illustrates the application of an implant index cast in implant fixed complete dentures (IFCDs).

The implant index cast was fabricated based on the immediate interim prosthesis and provides effective control of the fit of scanned files and printed models. Therefore, this approach allows a more predictable and accurate fit of the final prosthesis.
