Abstract

Computer-assisted oral implant surgery offers several advantages over the traditional approach. However, several unexpected procedure-linked adverse events during guided implant placement indicate that the clinical demands on the surgeon are no less than those observed during conventional placement. The aim of this report was to present a novel technique for the presurgical simulation of the position of computer-assisted, template-based, planned implants immediately before surgery. The presented technique could increase the clinician's confidence and the safety of the surgical procedures, which allows changes to the original plan if needed. The potential benefits of the present method should be confirmed by randomized clinical studies.
