Digital technology significantly changed the working sequences in restorative dentistry over the last two decades. In particular in the dental laboratory new fabrication techniques and materials were introduced. As implants represent high demands on prosthodontics in terms of mechanical stability and accuracy the advantages of digital fabrication might be a clinical benefit. For single crowns on implants the complete digital workflow can be applied. This means the restoration can be manufactured without a physical model. If implants are splinted the requirements on the fabrication sequence increase. In this case a traditional impression in combination with digitalization in the dental laboratory is still the golden standard. However, the digital fabrication technology can be used for small steps in the working sequence as well as major parts. The article should highlight the different working sequences and describe the use of digital fabrication for implant prosthodontics.
