The dental treatment involving implants requires a surgical intervention to place an implant - sort of an artificial root in patients bone. The quality and quantity of bone available for the implant is the key aspect in achieving success in this kind of dental treatment. In the past, the bone was assessed based on the analysis of the panoramic x-rays, but unfortunately that method lacked precision, as the OP G doesn't provide all the necessary information for the treatment team.

Luckily, nowadays, the possibility to use the computed tomography in the planning phase of implant treatment, completely changed the implant diagnostics. The 3D analysis of the CT made it possible to precisely plan the positions of implants, taking all the possible difficulties into account, especially in the demanding areas of the maxilla neighbouring the maxillary sinus, or posterior areas of the mandible, where the inferior alveolar nerves are located just below the teeth.

The modern implant dentistry uses sophisticated computer software to create the 3D model of patients' bone, and if the CT is performed with an individually prepared radiographic guide it is possible for the team to plan the implants positions perfectly where the missing teeth are.

When the treatment planning is complete, the implant planning software makes it also possible to create a precise surgical template, which has drill guides in planned implant positions. Thanks to such a template, the surgery may be performed flapless (thus it doesn't require any stitches to be used to close the flap), which makes it quicker, and more comfortable for the patient. After a classical surgical approach, most of the swelling and pain was caused by the trauma to the soft tissues and the periosteum. This discomfort will not be present when the implant surgery is performed with the New Surgical template.

To sum it up, the modern implant dentistry is based on a precise treatment planning using the computed tomography as a starting point to create a 3D visualisation of a patient's bone, opening a range of possible treatment protocols, which aims to satisfy even the most demanding patient's needs.
