Computer aided implantology allows a detailed, virtual implant planning in order to achieve a minimal invasive implant positioning suitable for the prosthodontic concept chosen. Dental technician Uli Hauschild, San Remo/Italy, illustrates how these systems can help in investigating all individual implant risks and to design the perfect prosthodontic concept for each patient.
For the patient computer aided implantology means broad information about the bone situation, the perhaps necessary pre-implantological surgery and the reasonable prosthodontic restoration. By the visualisation the patient is able to follow all steps of the procedure.
For the dentist computer aided implantology means perfect preparation for implant insertion, intra surgical surprises reduced to a minimum. The best implant position and the best esthetic outcome is plannable this way.
Uli Hauschild illustrates how dentist and patient can plan together the best possible prosthodontic-implantological result. He explains the production process of the drilling template as a guidance for the correct implant positioning.
