Surgical guides for dental implant placement can be fabricated from CT scans (hospital CT or office CT). A three dimensional model is fabricated in addition to the surgical guide. These guides/models are fabricated so that vital structures such as nerves, sinuses, or other teeth can be protected. CT fabricated dental surgical guides can also be used for placement of dental implants for teeth in a day or teeth by tonight procedures. This type of technology makes dental implant placement more predictable.
