The traditional technique for creating a CAD/CAM surgical template with a NobelGuide protocol is to fabricate a radiographic template that depicts the planned tooth position first. Multiple appointments are needed for the fabrication of the radiographic template with Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) before the surgical procedure can start. An alternative technique is described for fabricating a radiographic template at the initial examination appointment and capturing the necessary DICOM data to plan and fabricate a CAD/CAM surgical template in a 1-appointment protocol, thereby saving the patient and clinician time and reducing the need for multiple appointments.
