CT-based guided surgery: just as valuable for single-implant cases as for multi-site cases

The factors which trigger the need for guided surgery for multiple implant cases are the same for single implant placement. These include cross-sectional width and shape, position of the inferior alveolar nerve, mental foramen or maxillary sinus, cant of the mandible or maxilla, angulation and position of the roots of adjacent teeth, and poor physical and/or visual access to the surgical site.

For these reasons, there are many single tooth implant cases for which a surgical guide can assure a predictable result. For example, lower 2nd molar sites are often difficult to access both physically and visually, and can be further challenging if located posterior and deep in the patient’s mouth.
