Preprosthetic surgery 3D. A paradigma shift

Preprosthetic implant surgery has suffered a revolution in the last few years. There are several areas that have provoked this paradigm shift: Development of 3D diagnostic tools have enabled more accurate and precise planning of our reconstructions and implant placement. In the other hand, minimally invasive surgical principles have been incorporated in the therapeutic armamentarium allowing for less traumatic procedures and more predictible results. The combination of autogenous bone with biomaterials, and the development of tissue engineering techniques are improving our results while diminishing donor site morbidity. Finally, new prosthodontic approaches have enabled faster yet safe rehabilitations.
