Three-dimensional planning of a dental-implant site is critical when the dental implants placed in the edentulous area are to be used initially as anchor for tooth movement and later as prosthetic abutments for the fixed restoration. The combined orthodontic and prosthetic implant restorative treatment of an adult patient with missing teeth, diastema of teeth, and malocclusion is described in this article. Plastic cast bases combined with customized position plates allowed the precise transfer of the proposed implant position from the diagnostic arrangement to the original cast to avoid compromising subsequent orthodontic treatment.
