Enhanced CBCT Tools for Guided Surgical Applications

By Isaac D. Tawil, DDS, MS; and Michael Erdos, DDS

Commercial Supporter: Carestream Dental

This eBook features a continuing education (CE) article that describes metal artifact reduction (MAR) and facial scanning in cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) and the use of CBCT and intraoral scanning (IOS) in guided implant surgery. Three case studies are presented that demonstrate how CBCT facilitates guided implant placement in a patient requiring replacement of a single tooth, a patient with inadequate available bone necessitating a conservative approach, and a patient who required full-arch rehabilitation, respectively.



  • Discuss the concurrent increase in popularity of implant surgery, cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT), and intraoral scanning (IOS)
  • Describe the use of CBCT as a diagnostic modality, for treatment planning, and for treatment execution in guided implant surgery
  • Discuss metal artifact reduction and facial scanning
