Computerized tomography (CT)-based dental imaging for implant planning and surgical guidance carries both restorative information for implant positioning, as far as trajectory and distribution, and radiographic information, as far as depth and proximity to critical anatomic landmarks such as the mandibular canal, maxillary sinus, and adjacent teeth. This case report describes a systematic approach to the planning and surgical placement of a single implant-supported crown, utilizing CT-based dental imaging for implant planning and surgical guidance. The simple steps result in the accurate transfer of critical radiographic information to the surgical site.
