CT-Derived Model-Based Surgery for Immediate Loading of Maxillary Anterior Implants
Scott D. Ganz, DMD
A novel approach to predict implant placement utilizing CT-derived model-based surgery was performed for a maxillary-anterior aesthetic immediate extraction/immediate restoration; root proximity and inter-implant positioning was an additional complication. The use of state-of-the-art diagnostic and treatmentplanning tools described in this article has been shown to be effective for both partial and completely edentulous patient presentations. These tools can serve as a foundation for accurate, highly practical, and repeatable CT-scan–derived modelbased presurgical prosthetic planning for the immediate loading of dental implants.
This article discusses the use of CT scanning as an effective tool in planning and placing implants as part of restorative treatment. Upon reading this article, the reader should:
Socket Preservation to Gain
Tooth loss not only poses difficulty in mastication, it also involves the probable resorption of alveolar bone due to a loss of function and stimulation from the periodontal ligament fibers (PDL). Bone grafting at the time of tooth removal provides bone quantity and quality for future placement of dental implant(s). The challenge during this procedure—referred to as socket preservation—is maintaining the graft in place as well as providing a final working area with sufficient keratinized tissue…
Techniques for the Use of CT Imaging for the Fabrication of Surgical Guides
Often, diﬃculties related to poor surgical or prosthetic outcomes can be directly linked to the diagnostic and treatment-planning phase.
Clinical Investigation on Axial versus Tilted Implants for Immediate Fixed Rehabilitation of Edentulous Arches: Preliminary Results of a Single Cohort Study
The aims of this study were to evaluate the clinical
outcomes and patients’ satisfaction with immediately loaded full-arch fixed prostheses supported solely by axial or by a combination of axial and tilted implants in
both jaws and to compare the outcome of tilted versus axial fixtures in the same patients up to 5 years. The null
hypothesis was that no difference in survival rate and
marginal bone level change would exist between axial
and tilted implants and no difference in prosthetic survival
between rehabilitation's supported only by axial
implants or by a combination of axial and tilted
