Dana Ghorab DDS PC Challenges the Plausibility of the 3-D Planning Concept as a Bone Reduction Guide

The employment of interactive treatment development has stretched out radically in the past ten years as computing influence has augmented exponentially.


San Clemente, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/26/2014 -- The procedure in collecting patient information to identify which course of dental implant action should be done can be illustrated under the class of pre-surgical prosthetic planning. The first step in patient assessment entails traditional periapical radiographs, panoramic radiographs, oral assessment, and swelled, articulated study casts. These conventional instruments permit the clinician to evaluate a number of important facets of the patient’s anatomical appearance, including upright dimension of occlusion, lip support, phonetics, smile line, overjet, overbite, and ridge outlines, and to get a basic perception of the fundamental bone structures.

The buildup of initial data afforded by conservative diagnostics offers the basis for organizing a course of treatment for the patients. However, the evaluation of results is based on a 2-D evaluation of the patient’s bone structure and may not be precise in the appreciation of the spatial locations of other critical structures, like the incisive canal, the lower alveolar nerve, or the maxillary sinus. In order to comprehend each individual patient’s presentation fully, it is important that clinicians assume an innovative set of virtual 3-D tools. Via the use of superior imaging modalities, new paradigms have been recognized that, in the author’s opinion, will carry on to redefine the course of diagnosis and treatment preparation for dental implant procedures in the years to come. Devoid of the application of computed tomography (CT) or inferior radiation amount cone beam computed tomography (CBCT), an consideration of the 3-D anatomical actuality cannot be precisely unwavered, potentially mounting surgical and restorative problems.

The employment of interactive treatment development has stretched out radically in the past ten years as computing influence has augmented exponentially. There are at two conduits that can be considered once a virtual diagram has been established. The first is it permits the data to be evaluated offering significant date to the clinician who does the surgical intrusion free-hand according to the software plan. This is called the CT-assisted involvement by the author. The second one includes the production of a surgical template that is tenuously constructed from the digital plan via quick prototyping or stereolithography. This procedure is known as the CT-derived guide-assisted intervention and is known to be more expected than any old methods. The utilization of highly developed imaging modalities for presurgical prosthetic planning is necessary for any type of implant surgical and curative intervention, together with single-tooth and multiple-tooth restitution, full-arch fixed and detachable overdenture restoration.

In several case presentations, a decrease of the alveolar crest is an indispensable element of the surgical phase to attain sufficient width of the bone for implant placement. A San Clemente dentist has studied this virtual planning methodology and she found out that with the use of the said method, planning for accurate bone reduction with the complete knowledge of the impact on the inter-arch space and occlusal necessities is now doable. The dawn of the bone reduction model gives one supplementary digital solution that can also be an outcome of reduced patient morbidity, particularly when the procedure can be finished in one surgical procedure. Novel paradigms have been established that is sure to carry in redefining the process of analysis and treatment planning for dental implant processes, whether they are removable or there are fixed implant-retained alternatives. This method is expected to progress in the years to come.
