The role of cone-beam computed tomography in all-n-four dental implant placement: A case report of imaging-guided implant placement in maxilla
Author(s): Mahendra Patait, Ranjitkumar Patil
Abstract: Digital technology is becoming an indispensible tool in dental practice now a days. Cone-Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) – guided dental implant placement has been gaining stronghold as a concept over the past decade, and the techniques have become interestingly refined. There is a growing acceptance for the adoption and implementation of these techniques in routine practice. All-n-Four technique for dental implant placement with prosthetic considerations has generated an increased interest as a highly functional, esthetic, cost effective replacement of missing teeth in completely edentulous patients, where two straight and two angulated implants can take care of the entire arch with prosthetic replacement as an alternative to the cement retained or screw retained rehabilitation.
