Internal fit of three-unit fixed dental prostheses produced by computeraided design/computer-aided manufacturing and the lost-wax metal casting technique assessed using the triple-scan protocol -

Suboptimal adaptation of fixed dental prostheses (FDPs) can lead to technical and biological complications. It is unclear if the computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) technique improves adaptation of FDPs compared with FDPs made using the lost-wax and metal casting technique.
