The aim of this study was to show the operative procedure and the advantages coming from computer guided flapless surgery. This case report describes the use of stereolithographic surgiguides in order to insert 6 mandibular and 6 maxillary implants by a computer guided flapless surgery. These implants have been immediately loaded with cross arch screwed temporary prostheses. The definitive rehabilitation was realized with 2 fixed cross arch metal-ceramic prostheses that were cemented by AGC caps. The computer science technology allows to execute complex implant-prosthetic treatments in a shorter time, at low risk, with high esthetical and functional predictability and patient’ satisfaction.
