Indications for dental implantology 3D X-ray diagnostic (guidelines GERMANY, S3)

A clinical examination and adequate radiological diagnostics of the implant site are required prior to each implant placement. If the necessary information for diagnostics, therapy decision and implementation as well as in special cases for progress controls cannot be obtained from the clinical examination and/or classical two-dimensional imaging, three-dimensional diagnostics should be performed.Setting up the X-ray scanner, the smallest possible field of view (FoV) (acquisition volume) should be used according to the problem and an adequate spatial resolution should be selected that leads to the lowest possible radiation.
Diagnosis of the peri-implant environment is possible with the 3D-scanner, but can only be assessed to a limited extent in the immediate vicinity. The peri-implant bone should first be checked by two-dimensional imaging (e.g. tooth scan).
