Types of Radiographs Needed for Implants

Types of Radiographs Needed for Implants

There are three types of radiographs used:

Periapical in parallel

Panoramic (O.P.G)

A kind of CT scan called C.B.C.T

The most complete and comprehensive radiographic method in this treatment is a type of CT scan called C.B.C.T, which emits less radiation than the medical CT scan and provides 3D images of the jawbone in which the length and diameter of the bone are determined by the radiologist, so that the surgeon can implant the longest and thickest possible without encountering anatomical constraints such as the sinus floor, the nerves, and arteries inside the jawbone. Therefore, the use of this type of radiography for implant treatment seems necessary today.

Causes of Implant Surgery Failure

  • Inadequate washing and heating during surgery
  • Microbial infection in the implant area, especially in the patient's saliva
  • Very high pressure of the implant in the bone cavity to the bone
  • Inadequate initial strength of the implant in the cavity due to osteoporosis, especially in the posterior maxilla
  • Inadequate patient health after surgery
  • Remaining suture thread at the surgical site and causing infection with it
