Abstract

This work presents a method to obtain a surgical guide allowing the implantologist to execute easily and with accuracy the implant seat. The drilling direction is obtained by elaborating the CT digital images of the mandible by a semi-automated software and the guide for the execution of the hole is given by a customized drilling jig. The suggested method can be integrated with the current clinical protocol and it allows to execute less invasive surgery.
The research has been restricted to implantological problems connected to the mandible.
