Author(s): Dr. Shazia Khatoon, Dr. Samir Jain
Abstract: Oral rehabilitation using implants is rapidly replacing tooth supported prostheses. The success of implants is largely dependent on the quality and quantity of alveolar bone. Hence the present study was planned to evaluate the location of limiting anatomicalvariablesin maxilla and mandible in relation to dental implant placement. The present study was planned in the Department of Dentistry Anugrah Narayan Magadh Medical College, Gaya, Bihar. Total 60 panoramic radiographs of the both the sexes were selected for the present study. The radiographs of complete dentate patients with full coverage of both the jaws were selected for the study. Although oral radiology is the precious member of oral diagnosis procedures, only one imaging modality can provide us to wrong diagnosis. In the mandible, the amount of bone available in the premolar and molar regions was similar. However, in the maxilla, the vertical bone height was markedly less in the molar region as compared to the premolar region.
