Abstract

The insertion of dental implants is multifaceted. Adequate containment of the implant body requires not only a measurable volume of bone but also an acceptable density of this osseous foundation. Through interactive computerized axial tomography (CAT), not only are such measurements conveyed to the clinician, but vital structures that should be avoided or at least accounted for are portrayed in a three-dimensional manner. Predictability is enhanced, and the implants can be directed for prosthetic use in conjunction with surgical guides (templates).
