Replacing teeth with an implant supported restoration represents both surgical and restorative challenges, including a lack of space between the roots, bone defects/concavities, soft tissue concerns, emergence profile, and sufficient bone volume and/or density. The use of two dimensional periapical or panoramic imaging fails to provide clinicians with an adequate appraisal of the existing bone anatomy...

...Cone Beam CT (CBCT) allows for an unprecedented visualization of the bone, adjacent roots, and nearby vital structures, which empowers clinicians with new state-of-the-art tools to diagnose and develop a treatment plan. Proper pre-surgical prosthetic planning involves understanding the patient’s bony anatomy, adjacent teeth, vital structures, occlusion and desired aesthetics. Utilizing advanced three-dimensional imaging modalities combined with interactive treatment planning software helps clinicians provide an accurate assessment of potential implant receptor sites. The “Triangle of Bone®” concept provides clinicians with a decision tree protocol to evaluate implant receptor sites.  The merging of these technologies allows clinicians to ensure proper restorative outcomes.
