Background: Today the availability of real 3D planning software which furthers more allows a reliable transfer to the surgical field through drilling template placement, imaging modalities available preoperative planning purpose with specific focus in the use of software for planning of oral implant surgery. This study was established to shed light on the role of 3D dental planning CT in assessment the bone Quantity (height and width) and quality for dental implant and its relation to opposing tooth.
Materials, subjects and method: Oral implant planning was performed for twenty patients with fifteen suspected oral implant area in AL-Karkh general hospital by incorporating the restorative planning during the preoperative assessment of the implant site by using a radiographic template with a radiopaque indicator (inside the patient mouth while the patient mouth was closed during the diagnosis) in conjunction with a CT-based imaging system. Preoperative and postoperative CT images were compared (planned and actual implant positions), and the accuracy of this type of image-guided therapy was assessed.
Result: From the collected data (preoperative CT-image) in this study it was shown that, the ability of 3D dental planning CT to supply the surgeon with a high resolution image of anatomical limitations, bone density and true length and width. There were no major surgical complications, 20 implants were available for comparison so the required accuracy of dental implant planning was superior with CT-based surgical guidance template image there was a statistically significant correlation in the accuracy of any implants placed with the same guide
Conclusion: CT-based oral implant planning with surgical guidance, when properly utilized, will help of removing the limitations associated with two-dimensional imaging modalities for planning implants, and will empower clinicians with more diagnostic information, it allowed for a physical transfer of the implant planning to the patient’s mouth safely and predictably.
Key words: Multi-detector computed tomography, computer-aided design, and dental implants, surgical Templates .
