The aim of this clinical report is to describe the use of the photogrammetric system and intraoral scanning as a reliable technique to record the 3-dimensional implant positions of a full-arch maxillary implant–supported fixed rehabilitation in which the implants were unfavorably positioned. The stereo camera of the photogrammetric system was used to capture the 3-dimensional panoramic position of the implants. The information on soft tissues was obtained with an intraoral scanner. Then, the 2 digital files (standard tessellation language [STL] files) were subsequently superimposed using a best-fit alignment function to generate the definitive digital model with information on teeth, soft tissues, and implants.
