Three-Dimensional Templates for Placement of Root-Form Dental Implants: A Technical Note
Higginbottom, Frank L. / Wilson jr., Thomas G.
This report describes a method for gathering information to assist in properly placing dental implants. A diagnostic template is first fabricated, incorporating radiographic markers. Radiographs of the template are obtained, and data from their study are transferred to the laboratory to facilitate the fabrication of a surgical template. This procedure has the potential to map implant sites three dimensionally. Template use can result in a greater number of implants placed in optimal positions.
