CT and cone-beam CT technology provides clinicians with new methods to view patient anatomy exceeding conventional two-dimensional radiology. Interactive software applications allow for improved interpretation of the CT scan data. Proper use of this new technology must be based on a solid foundation of fundamental surgical and prosthodontic protocols. Advances in software and associated hardware have empowered clinicians with the necessary tools to harness the technology, while remaining true to conventional standards. The enhanced capability of innovative software applications that allow clinicians to interpret and maneuver through various three-dimensional images has far-reaching implications when interactive treatment planning software is combined with computer-aided design and manufacturing. Using all available virtual tools, true restoratively driven implant dentistry can be accomplished, ultimately benefiting patients.
