Registration of maxillomandibular relationship through a fully digital workflow for complete-mouth rehabilitation with screw-retained fixed implant-supported prostheses: A clinical report


      Digital recording of the maxillomandibular relationship by using intraoral scanning in completely edentulous patients for computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacture implant-supported prostheses can be challenging. This clinical report describes the fabrication of complete-arch, screw-retained implant-supported prostheses in a completely edentulous patient with a fully digital workflow.
