Implantology of today can be more than only a reconstruction of a missing tooth structure. In times of digitally based smile design and complete implant based reconstruction of an edentulous jaw the planning plays more and more a major role.
With the help of modern digital technology, we are able to collect as much data as possible to create a new smile and moreover a new bite situation. The combination of 3D extraoral and intraoral information in combination with the x-ray data can be seen as the future base for complete reconstructions. Using the rules of cephalometry in the modern 3D x-ray diagnostic as well as adding the 3D picture of the face of the patient for planning the needed changings and their influences can be planed and estimated already at the time of diagnostics.
This lecture will show the creating of these data and their combination for a profound diagnostic, planning and at the and also its realization.
