Abstract

By using specific software programmes, it is now possible to obtain reformatted CT images of the mandible and maxilla. This facility has proved to be valuable in the planning of fixed and removable suprastructures in implantology. We describe the use of a radiopaque prosthetic template to enable the optimal position and axial inclination of the fixtures in edentulous patients to be established.
