Computer-Assisted Planning of Oral Implant Surgery: A Three-Dimensional Approach
Verstreken, Kris / van Cleynenbreugel, Johan / Marchal, Guy / Naert, Ignace / Suetens, Paul / van Steenberghe, Daniel
A planning system for oral implant surgery based on a true three-dimensional approach is described. This system allows the interactive placement and adjustment of axial-symmetric models representing implants in the jawbone structures visible on computerized tomographic volume data. Simultaneous visualization is possible on two-dimensional reformatted images and on three-dimensional-derived bone surface representations. This approach largely outperforms the manual planning practice based on two-dimensional dental computerized tomographic images printed or on film.
