The dental implant procedure has a long and proven track record to be one of the most predictable in terms of treatment outcome. This procedure has integrated itself as a part of routine treatment plans in dental offices because of increasing popularity and patient acceptance. In order to uphold this success, optimum diagnosis and treatment planning is crucial. Hence, computerized tomography aided imaging and template-guided surgery plays an important role in pre-placement planning and helps ensure positive outcomes. This article describes the benefits of computer-guided surgery as compared with conventional implant placement procedures, along with a case report. Clinical Relevance to Interdisciplinary Dentistry
  1. Implant therapy requires a multidisciplinary approach.
  2. The prosthodontist needs to plan the situation with the end prosthesis in mind.
  3. The periodontist needs to preserve the already compromised bone.
  4. The surgeon needs to navigate the implant into critical areas.
