An innovative simplified method for assessing available bone in mandible for implant

View Article: PubMed Central - PubMed

ABSTRACT

The primary factor that determines the success of implant is the amount of available bone in the edentulous site. Diagnostic imaging and techniques help to develop and implement a cohesive and comprehensive treatment plan according to the available bone. In the following case report an innovative simplified method (poor man CT) is used to fabricate a three dimensional model to assess the available bone for implant placement in mandible.

Mentions: Replacing the plastic rod with metal plate and key system The plastic rod was replaced by a metal plate in the first generation [Figure 5] for better stability and better customization. A key system was incorporated to adjust the length and angulation according to each patient's mandible. On the top of the metal plate, acrylic was adapted. Addition silicone putty placed on the acrylic plate can be customized each time to record the extraoral impression. The extraoral impression should record the lower border of the mandible to the medial extent as much as possible [Figure 6]
