This case report describes a digital workflow used for three main purposes: to predict the volume of particulate grafting material required to perform alveolar ridge preservation; to conduct subsequent virtual implant planning; and to digitally design the respective implant-supported crown. The volume of equine-derived bone grafting material required for filling the alveolar socket is digitally estimated in cubic millimeters from cone beam computed tomographic (CBCT) data using a specific software tool for volume measurements. Digital crown design from an intraoral scan allows for milling the definitive implant-supported crown. For this purpose, a scan body can be used and even slightly trimmed externally to avoid excessive proximity with an adjacent rotated tooth.
