Fabrication of a Dual-Purpose Surgical Template for Correct Labiopalatal Positioning of Dental Implants
Cehreli, Murat Cavit / Süahin, Saime
An implant-supported prosthesis can potentially provide a functional and esthetic reconstruction, provided that the implants are precisely placed in the predetermined location and angulation. Since the accurate placement of osseointegrated implants in the anterior maxilla with questionable bone support is often a clinical challenge, the use of computed tomography and surgical guides is crucial. This article describes a technique to fabricate a template that served as a guide for radiographic evaluation and was then modified for use in the surgical phase of the treatment.
