Advanced Imaging Techniques for Implant Planning and Guided Implantology
Digital dentistry is presently one of the most exciting areas in the field of dental science. 3D Volumetric Imaging in the dental practice is rapidly changing the approach to implant planning and placement. This technology provides substantial improvements in diagnosis and understanding of the implant recipient site prior to implant placement. This technology has also allowed for the evolution of advanced guided surgical implant placement. Guided implantology is gaining interest and acceptance at an exponential rate among all disciplines of dentistry. This course will review advance techniques for evaluating the potential implant site using volumetric CBCT imaging with an emphasis on utilizing various surgical guide systems to enhance implant placement.
