Cone beam analysis of the buccal bone associated 
with a dental implant: A tridimensional assessment case report.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

This case report presents cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) three-dimensional (3D) assessment of the buccal bone associated with an implant.

METHOD AND MATERIALS:

A patient who had immediate implant replacement of a maxillary incisor received a CBCT examination after 6 months. The scanned volume was then subjected to segmentation of the buccal bone associated with the implant and to its three-dimensional rendering.

RESULTS:

Virtual reconstruction allowed volumetric assessment of the buccal plate, and of the buccal marginal bone level.

CONCLUSION:

Creating a 3D virtual volume permits a comprehensive evaluation of the anatomical information contained in the CBCT dataset.
