Guided implant surgery simplifies the execution of implant placement procedures and provides optimal clinical outcomes. The aim of this report was to demonstrate digital implant surgery process and to evaluate implant deviations at apex and platform. Case: A 55-year-old man with no relevant medical history and having an edentulous maxilla referred to the department of oral and maxillofacial surgery. Mucosa-supported guide and implant locations based on the desired prosthetic design was planned via Codiagnostix® software. Six implants were inserted and immediate provisional prosthesis was adapted to the maxilla. To analyze implant deviations, pre-planned image and post-operative cone beam computed tomography were superimposed. Digitally guided implant surgery is a beneficial and minimal invasive method for providing pre-treatment prosthetic evaluation and reducing intraoperative human error and surgery time. Although implant deviations were diagnosed in all implants with different degrees, final prosthetic rehabilitation was successfully achieved.
