Abstract

An implant locating system has been developed. The system contains a stent that maps the jaw bone at the implantation site through the tissue, sends a signal to a computer with a CT scan of the jaw on it, and superimposes the position of the stent on the jaw so that a dental surgeon could angle the implant for placement without requiring to raise a flap to expose the bone. Using a novel tactile technology the system allows safe, accurate, and simple implant placement and design. The ILS software allows: 1. Importing of CT data. 2. Marking a dental arc on the computerized jaw image. 3. Planning of implant location and position on a 3-D view. 4. Affixation of the ILS to the jaw, followed by registration of the stent. 5. Navigated osteotomy and implant placement.
