  • modular preoperative planning software for computer aided oral implantology and the application of a novel stereolithographic template a pilot study
    Clinical Implant Dentistry and Related Research, 2009
    Co-Authors: Xiaojun Chen, Jianbing Yuan, Chengtao Wang, Yuanliang Huang, Lu Kang
    Abstract:

    Purpose: In the field of oral implantology, there is a trend toward computer-aided implant Surgery, especially the application of computerized tomography (CT)-derived surgical templates. However, because of relatively unsatisfactory match between the templates and receptor sites, conventional surgical templates may not be accurate enough for the severely resorbed edentulous cases during the procedure of transferring the preoperative plan to the Actual Surgery. The purpose of this study is to introduce a novel bone–tooth-combined-supported surgical guide, which is designed by utilizing a special modular software and fabricated via stereolithography technique using both laser scanning and CT imaging, thus improving the fit accuracy and reliability. Materials and Methods: A modular preoperative planning software was developed for computer-aided oral implantology. With the introduction of dynamic link libraries and some well-known free, open-source software libraries such as Visualization Toolkit (Kitware, Inc., New York, USA) and Insight Toolkit (Kitware, Inc.) a plug-in evolutive software architecture was established, allowing for expandability, accessibility, and maintainability in our system. To provide a link between the preoperative plan and the Actual Surgery, a novel bone–tooth-combined-supported surgical template was fabricated, utilizing laser scanning, image registration, and rapid prototyping. Clinical studies were conducted on four partially edentulous cases to make a comparison with the conventional bone-supported templates. Results: The fixation was more stable than tooth-supported templates because laser scanning technology obtained detailed dentition information, which brought about the unique topography between the match surface of the templates and the adjacent teeth. The average distance deviations at the coronal and apical point of the implant were 0.66 mm (range: 0.3–1.2) and 0.86 mm (range: 0.4–1.2), and the average angle deviation was 1.84° (range: 0.6–2.8°). Conclusions: This pilot study proves that the novel combined-supported templates are superior to the conventional ones. However, more clinical cases will be conducted to demonstrate their feasibility and reliability.
