One of the difficulties we encounter when planning dental implants is the anatomy of the jaws of the patient.
After the loss of a tooth, the bone is lost vertically and horizontally leading to a smaller space to place an implant. If we add certain anatomical structures such as the inferior alveolar nerve in the jaw or the maxillary sinus, it may condition the surgery requiring the placement of bone grafts or other kind of implants.
We must also take into account the available space and the type of prosthesis to be held for the implant to have a proper emergency.
The 3D CT allows to study the morphology of the jaws, the distances to the anatomical structures and planning the placement of implants to increase the success of treatment and reduce the likelihood of complications.
