CBCT Indications – Implantology


In order to choose the appropriate implant location, precise information on the available bone and its quality, and the precise location of critical areas are needed. The location of the mandibular canal or maxillary sinus can be simply and easily determined. With a parallel view of all three dimensions, measuring functions and an implant file, it is possible to efficiently and reliably measure the implant procedure.

SINUSES – floor, position, implant direction
MANDIBULAR CANAL – direction, position, relation to roots, bone leftover for implantation
ALVEOLAR RIDGE WIDTH – quantity of cancellous and compact bone, boundary of bone and hard connective tissue
LINGUAL INCLINATION OF THE INNER MANDIBULAR SURFACE – position of the lingualis artery, direction of mandibular implant
DEPTH OF ALVEOLAR RIDGE BASE – implant direction
IMPLANT INCLINATION – toward anatomical structures, available bone, surrounding teeth
IMPLANT WIDTH – determined in relation to available bone
PARA-IMPLANT RIDGE AUGMENTATION – possibility of planning augmentation before implantation

CBCT is the golden standard in implant planning, which is particularly important from the perspective of forensic medicine.

An exact 1:1 ratio enables making all the measurements necessary for determining dimensions more conclusively and precisely and for positioning the implant.

Images in the internationally standardized DICOM format can easily be transferred to most program packages for additional treatment planning. For systems of computer-guided implantology via implant templates, data on bone volume is delivered in the DICOM format.

The program contains an implant verification module, which serves to aid implant planning by rotating all images around a virtually implanted implant. This creates an enhanced view of surrounding structures. The model can be used if an implant illustration is positioned on the image. Therefore, if you wish to use this option, list the implant brand and type. We will position the implant you wish to use on the side of the image. That way you will be able to use an exact implant illustration and position it anywhere on the 3D image.
