Implant Imaging

3D diagnostic images of potential mandibular and maxillary implant sites:

  • provide information about the quality and quantity of the bone, as well as morphology of the alveolar processes;
  • cross-sectional views document the bucco-lingual width of the alveolar processes, height and inclination of bony contours;
  • morphologic features such as ridge concavities, the extent of the submandibular gland fossa that are not immediately apparent on clinical examination or conventional radiographs, become evident on the cross-sectional views;
  • accurate bone measurements are essential for determination of the optimal size, length, inclination / orientation of the proposed implants;
  • anatomical structures, such as the Inferior Alveolar Nerve Canal, Mental Foramen, anterior loop and terminal incisive branch of the mandibular nerve canal, the genial spinal canal are visualized in the mandible.
  • maxillary anatomical structures: 3D morphology of the maxillary sinuses, Incisive Foramen, Nasopalatine Canal are also accurately identified.

At OMIC we provide prints that are calibrated to true size, so true size templates can be superimposed on the images for planning purposes and additional measurements can be performed directly on the prints.
