Implant imaging for the dentist

Muralidhar Mupparapu, Steven R Singer
2004 Journal of the Canadian Dental Association  
This article gives an overview of current practices in implant imaging for the practising dentist, with emphasis on selection criteria.  ...  The development of precise presurgical imaging techniques and surgical templates allows the dentist to place these implants with relative ease and predictability.  ...  The greatest amount of peri-implant vertical bone loss occurs within the first year after placement of the implants, followed by a dramatic decrease in the rate of bone loss in subsequent intervals. 23  ...
