Abstract

Computed tomographic scan is a precise complementary examination of diagnostic imaging and a noninvasive surveying technique that enables the professional to improve precision of implant placement by building a prototype that allows the confection of surgical guides. The authors present a clinical case of mandible rehabilitation based on computed tomography of a patient; the cross sections were reformatted and used to construct a virtual planning of the implants and a guide template in Dental Slice. Immediate loading of 5 titanium implants were placed in the mandible using a Slice Guide System. This technique allows a better surgical planning, makes the procedures more accurate, and reduces surgery time.
