Computer-Assisted Planning of Oral Implant Surgery: A Three-Dimensional Approach

Kris Verstreken, MD, MSEE/Johan Van Cleynenbreugel, MS, PhD/Guy Marchal, MD, PhD/Ignace Naert, DDS, PhD/Paul Suetens, MS, PhD/Daniel van Steenberghe, MD, PhD

A planning system for oral implant surgery based on a true three-dimensional approach is described. This system allows the interactive placement and adjustment of axial-symmetric models representing implants in the jawbone structures visible on computerized tomographic volume data. Simultaneous visualization is possible on two-dimensional reformatted images and on three-dimensional-derived bone surface representations. This approach largely outperforms the manual planning practice based on two-dimensional dental computerized tomographic images printed or on film. (INT J ORAL MAXILLOFAC IMPLANTS 1996;11:806810)

Key words: computer-assisted surgery, computerized tomography, dental implant, OpenGL, preoperative planning
