Digital implantology: daily business or future tool

Current dental implantology aimed to develop techniques that can provide optimal 3D implant positioning with respect to both prosthetic and anatomical parameters. Important achievements in this fi eld have undoubtedly been the introduction of cone beam technique (CBCT), digital impressions, 3D planning software, and CAD/CAM technology in implant dentistry.

As many of these techniques are already available in clinical practice it is of great importance to evaluate the possibilities and limitations of computer-assisted implant dentistry in clinical applications. Hence, the aim of this lecture is to discuss the clinical procedure of computer-assisted implant dentistry, the link to the digital workfl ow, the clinical indications and the accuracy and clinical performance of computer applications for implant diagnosis and surgery.
