Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


This chapter analyzes the utility of guided implant surgery and its value in the context of the esthetic implant dentistry. Guided implant surgery has helped facilitate, simplify, and overcome the most common challenges in dental implant therapy. Immediate implant placement is normally used due to esthetic needs. The chapter discusses the most difficult challenges in guided surgery in the esthetic area and the use of a new technique to overcome them: the double template technique (DTT). Guided surgery can be useful in placing implants in a post‐extraction site. A correct placement is crucial in this type of therapy. Before starting any surgery it is important to make sure that the surgical template is sits precisely on the underlying mucosa. Once checked that no discrepancy exists, with the patient biting into the surgical index, the surgical template is fixed to the bone structure using the anchor pins.
