Abstract

Preoperative 3-dimensional (3D) planning using cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) and 3D implant-planning software is used routinely for implant placement. However, despite its importance in planning surgical technique (conventional or flapless surgery) and prognosis, the distribution of keratinized gingival tissues (KGT) and soft tissue morphology cannot be identified with CBCT or planning software images. This report introduces a technique for identifying the distribution of KGT and soft tissue morphology during preoperative 3D planning.
