As promised here are the photos for the mini implant crown to replace a missing molar tooth. In this example of using mini implants for a crown 3 minis were used to replace the three roots on the missing upper molar.

We have been using the iTERO dental scanner for 20 months now and decided to see how it would scan muliple mini dental implants. I did take a traditional impression as a backup and also to verify the fit of the mini implant crown.
I discussed the case with Valdi at Shatkin FIRST Lab's and he felt like there should be no issue with the case using the iTERO scan. He built the case just like any other one he does on a daily basis.
