A computer guided surgery will be using the CT scan images of the cone beam of the patient to plan an accurate implant treatment. Computer guided surgery software will allow you to manipulate and see the images of the jawbone of the patient and the surrounding tissue that will give you a chance to plan the most precise treatment approach. The CT scan images of the cone beam will be able to show you the available bone, the vital structures, the thickness of soft tissues, and the adjacent teeth’s root anatomy and proximity.
