Digitalization of edentulous areas restored with dental implants is still considered a demanding procedure, mainly because of the lack of fixed reference landmarks, together with an increased interimplant distance. To overcome such limitations, an auxiliary device is introduced with the 3-fold purpose of stretching the soft tissues with a fixed object connected to the scan bodies, creating areas with nonhomogeneous architectures between the implants, and shortening the interimplant distance with the interposition of solid geometric figures. The rationale was to increase the accuracy of digital scans in a cast-free digital implant workflow.
