Immediate loading of implants with hybrid prostheses may be beneficial for patients with failing dentition. The success of computer-based planning of implant position and production of stereo-lithographic surgical templates has also been demonstrated. Alternatively, 3D stereo-lithographic models may be used for implant treatment planning, however long-term data has not yet been reported. The aim of this non-interventional, retrospective case series was to evaluate the outcome of immediately loaded implants in patients with failing dentitions that require bone tablingusing a bone reduction guide and a surgical guide manufactured directly on 3D models.
