The purpose of this paper is to expand on part 1 of this series (published in the previous issue) regarding the emerging future of computer-guided implant dentistry. This article will introduce the concept of rapid-prototype medical modeling as well as describe the utilization and fabrication of computer-generated surgical drilling guides used during implant surgery. The placement of dental implants has traditionally been an intuitive process, whereby the surgeon relies on mental navigation to… CONTINUE READING
