A Simple Way to Plan Implant Positioning: The S-Technique

Piano, Sergio

This study presents a technique for improving implant placements. As is widely known, a correct positioning is essential in restoration-driven implants, as well as in tilted implants in order to obtain satisfactory final functional and esthetic results. To this end, some authors have emphasized the importance of using a diagnostic and/or surgical guide to plan the exact implant position. In practice, one of the clinical problems faced is how to check the accuracy of the template prior to initiating the surgical phase. A simple method called the S-Technique is proposed in order to evaluate and to change, if necessary, the projected position of the implants by way of metal rods as radiopaque markers. This device is easy to produce and is cost-saving to the clinician and, therefore, to the patient. Furthermore, in specific patients, this method could also decrease the need for computerized tomography scans and/or radiographs, thus reducing health risks for the patient.
