Abstract Dental implant technology has shown a great interest in the past decade, this is due to the successful treatment outcomes in replacing the missing teeth. The impact of dental implants was maintaining the natural appearance, good function and most importantly allowing to maintain the hygiene measures for long-term results. A major contributing factor to the success of dental implants is appropriate treatment planning which achieved through careful implant placement, and pre-operative assessment of the hard and soft tissues. Digital imaging application software is available for proper planning and guiding implant surgery, this software helps in accurate placement of dental implants and thus increasing the chances of success of prosthetic implant. The fully digital workflow (DWF) in guided dental implant rehabilitation is now a reality, allowing dentists to plan digital treatments pre-operative and obtain a simpler, precious and faster clinical procedures for the operators and the patients as well than conventional approach. Objective : To thorough the light on the importance of using the digital implant workflow (DWF) and its significance in improving dental implant outcomes. Methods: Before the procedure of Placing the dental implant using a computer‑assisted implant surgery (CAIS ) , the surgical guide is fitted in the mouth. It must be precisely adapted and stabilized to the soft tissues. the implant bed was prepared according to the manufacturer ’s protocol . All implants evaluated clincally and radiographicaly ,pre-opertive and postopertivly to assess the successful placement of implant in the bone . Results: there is a positive, predictable successful outcomes with DWF by using stereolithography, Also, it represents an economic advantage for clinicians, and also benefits for the patients by reducing rehabilitation operating sessions and waiting times. Conclusion: When considering the overall accuracy in implant placement, the computer guided surgery technique is favourable . Moreover, it minimizes the risk of intra and post-operative complications. Minimally invasive procedures allow us to treat patients with more complex systemic problems and increase their quality of life.
