Using Cone Beam CT (CBCT) Technology to Plan Complex Implant Placement in the Maxilla.

This is a case report published in Prexion3D’s December 2011 newsletter.  All phases of this case were completed by Dr. Noumbissi. A patient had a missing tooth in the anterior maxilla, 3D dental imaging technology (CBCT) and software (InVivo5) were utilized to adequately and accurately plan the placement and temporization of a metal free zirconia dental implant.

The  CBCT radiation from the Prexion is extremely low compared to medical CT scanners. The InVivo 5  software was used to perform virtual implant placement prior to surgery. From the  implant placement simulation a surgical guide was generated using CAD/CAM technology.  The surgical guide was then utilized to place the implant in a precise manner allowing for much safer and more predictable implant placement.
