Dental implants have become a viable choice in treatment planning to replace missing teeth. Case se-lection in regards to various factors is of utmost importance to have a predictable outcome when considering treatment with dental implants. Advanced diagnostic techniques, using sophisticated software have become invaluable aids in predicting the locations for dental implants.
