The aim of the chapter is to give a complete survey of Computer Aided Surgery (CAS) systems in dental implantology from the different 3D visualization technologies to the different available approaches for implant planning data transfer to the corresponding anatomical patient´s sites. Focus will be on the illumination of advantages and disadvantages for the different systems components. Further on, the diagnostic value, radiation dosages to the patient, availability and costs as well as the transfer accuracy results for the investigated system will be discussed.

Accuracy Of The First Integrated Cone-Beam System For Computer Aided Implantology

Since 1997 different approaches for computer-assisted surgery (CAS) and computer aided dental implantology (CAI) are available. These systems comprise different technologies for three-dimensional (3D) visualization of the patient´s anatomy and visualization software capable of virtual dental implant position planning. The artifice of registration is the key for transferring the virtually planned implant positions to the corresponding patient´s anatomical sites on basis of different navigation technology approaches.
