Abstract

Replacement of lost teeth with prostheses, acceptable aesthetics and function is the final goal of every dentist. The failure of routine treatment methods for teeth replacement has motivated research into finding more acceptable ways1. Over the past several years endosseous implants have emerged as viable treatment option for patients desiring replacement of missing teeth. Hence, a substantial amount of research has been directed in improving the success and predicatability of implant restoration as well as shortening the treatment time and optimal aesthetics2. In implantology, bone stability is the key factor to success. 1One of the major criteria for evaluating implant success is determining the crestal bone levels surrounding an implant. Various radiological methods are used for quantitative assessment of alveolar bone. However, Computerized tomography (CT) scans are more objective and reliable than other methods for pre-operative quantitative assessment. Also information regarding bone density can be obtained form them.4
