Abstract

A straightforward digital restorative method based on a library of stock abutments is presented. Precisely scanned data of laboratory analog components of the stock abutment were obtained using a tabletop scanner to produce the library. The stock abutment and surrounding teeth, opposing arch, and occlusal information were recorded using an intraoral scanner. After transferring the scanned data to computer-aided design software, an appropriate library file for the abutment connected within the mouth was matched in order to design the prosthesis.
