More and more digital tools are being used for separate clinical procedures. The accuracy of separate techniques is often investigated, but the information is missing on how to effectively employ all different tools and techniques into one united workflow.. When it comes to the “fit” of the restorations, mainly the “passive-fit” is being considered. However, clinically many criteria for the fit in a broader sense become important: internal and marginal, proximal and occlusal contact, emergence contour, and many other types of fit. Due to various types of misfits, the effectiveness of the treatment is decreased. It is also important to emphasize the importance of the selection of the prosthetic components and laboratory procedures. Different laboratory strategies for the working model fabrication should be selected: model-free, 3D printed, or plaster control models. Material selection could also play a pivotal role in minimizing the level of technical complications and increasing biocompatibility.
Therefore, there is a need to organize digital and analogue techniques into simplified algorithms that would allow practitioners to minimize the rate of technical and biological complications and increase the efficiency of the treatment. By satisfying multiple criteria for the different types of fits, the “Total Fit Workflows” (TFW) is organized into 6 distinct procedures employing different techniques. TFW unites different digital and analogue techniques to simplify the treatment and increase its reliability, control the error propagation, allow logic selection of the prosthetic components, coordinate better clinical and laboratory procedures, allow more objective evaluation the misfits, help to manage the most common complications and provide tools for further improvement of treatment efficiency.
