The role of cone-beam computed tomography in imaging-guided implantology: A case report of imaging-guided placement of single tooth dental implant
AUTHOR(S): Mahendra R Patait and Ranjitkumar Patil
Three-dimensional imaging, particularly cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT), has made significant contributions to the planning and placement of dental implants. The accuracy of CBCT data can be used to fabricate a surgical guide that transfers the implant planning information to the surgical site, which facilitates implant placement. Prosthetically driven implant prosthesis assures good aesthetics, function, and most importantly hygiene maintenance, which enhances the long-term success rates. Precision in this treatment planning and implementation of planned treatment is vital for this success.
Here we describe a method for applying CBCT data to aid in the accurate planning and placement of single tooth implant.
