Markers for Implant Placement in CBCT: A Technical Overview


Abstract - Cone beam computer tomography (CBCT) is becoming a more accessible modality of imaging within dentistry. It has particular application in the diagnostic treatment planning for dental implant placement. The use of radiographic surgical stents with CBCT can help to provide important information about bone position and therefore placement of implants and final restorations. This article looks at a novel technique, which allows a variety of different marker positions that can be quickly and easily placed and removed. It allows the use of a current prosthesis that can be adapted to act as a surgical stent during CBCT.

KEY WORDS: Implant markers, Dental CBCT, Placement of implants.
