Cone beam analysis of the buccal bone associated with a dental implant: A tridimensional assessment case report
González-Martín, Oscar / Veltri, Mario
Objective: This case report presents cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) three-dimensional (3D) assessment of the buccal bone associated with an implant.
Method and Materials: A patient who had immediate implant replacement of a maxillary incisor received a CBCT examination after 6 months. The scanned volume was then subjected to segmentation of the buccal bone associated with the implant and to its three-dimensional rendering.
Results: Virtual reconstruction allowed volumetric assessment of the buccal plate, and of the buccal marginal bone level.
Conclusion: Creating a 3D virtual volume permits a comprehensive evaluation of the anatomical information contained in the CBCT dataset.

Keywords: bone quantity, bone volume rendering, cone beam computed tomography
