A Precise Radiographic Method to Determine the Location of the Inferior Alveolar Canal in the Posterior Edentulous Mandible: Implications for Dental Implants. Part 2: Clinical Application
Stella, John Paul / Tharanon, Wichit
An analysis of implant placement in the posterior region of eight edentulous cadaver mandibles was performed. The results demonstrated that the radiographic technique developed can be employed to safely place implants adjacent to the inferior alveolar nerve in the posterior mandible by using radiographic laminography and a specially designed intraoral reference splint.
