Abstract

The article describes a prosthetically guided method for the fabrication of surgical templates for partially edentulous patients. A number of stainless steel components are used to capture the optimal prosthetic position for the placement of the implant determined from a diagnostic arrangement. A radiopaque stainless steel guide sleeve is used to guide the drill in preparation of the osteotomy after radiographs are made to verify the position and proposed trajectory of the guide sleeve.
