Digital Placement – Guided Surgery and Surgical Stents

German Gallucci

Nowadays 3D planning software programs are available to transfer the information from a digital 3D planning environment to the intraoperative surgical field by means of computer-aided or guided surgery. This lecture discusses the applications of 3D planning in implant dentistry.Surgical templates are based on a combination of CAD/CAM and rapid-prototyping (3D printing) technology for fabrication. Precise virtual implant placement in 3D planning software programs is based on the computed tomography (CT) scans of a patient’s bony anatomy and a radiographic guide containing the tooth or teeth to be replaced. A surgical template is produced by additive manufacturing (3D printing) based on the virtually planned information and incorporates precise drill sleeves for implants. Computer-aided technology has shown significant improvements in accuracy in comparison to conventional implant placement.

At the end of this Congress Lecture you should be able to…

  • explain the sequence of producing a surgical guide for computer-aided surgery
  • describe different types of surgical guides along with their advantages or disadvantages
  • recognize the value of guided surgery in significantly improving accuracy in comparison to conventional implant placement
