In implant dentistry, diagnostic imaging serves two main purposes: to establish a diagnosis and to aid in surgical treatment planning. This lecture provides a brief overview of the role of diagnostic radiography as well as the available options for two-dimensional imaging. Next, the use of 2D imaging for implant treatment planning is covered in detail using a case example. Finally, the lecturer shows how 2D imaging is the appropriate technique to confirm the position of an implant in relation to anatomical boundaries as well as for follow-up in most clinical situations.
At the end of this Congress Lecture you should be able to…
explain the purpose of diagnostic imaging in implant dentistry
list the available modalities for 2D imaging
describe the use of 2D imaging for dental implant treatment planning
