Host: Anthony Cooper
Date: 4 November 2020
Time: 19:00

There are good reasons to use Cone Beam CT but also good reasons not to use it.  So how do we decide when to use CBCT when planning dental implants?  Andrew will show how the efficacy of diagnostic imaging is evaluated and present the available evidence.  Research methods in recent projects concerning imaging prior to implant placement in the anterior edentulous mandible will be considered. Current imaging guidelines will be discussed and Andrew will present his hints and tips for good imaging practice prior to dental implant placement.
