Narrow ridge. Avoid the nerve. Flapless? What size implant? So many judgments for implant placement. This course presents an overview of the role CBCT-3D imaging plays in surgical guidance and how it is clinically relevant to oral implantology. Many useful clinical examples will be presented that demonstrate the linkage between pre-op CT imaging and how 3D images benefit treatment outcomes for dental implants while reducing risk. In addition, cases will be presented with adverse outcomes that might have been altered had pre-op CT scans been utilized.
Learners taking these courses will:
- Have a clearer understanding of the limits of 2D dental X-rays
- Have a better understanding of 3D imaging
- Become familiar how to interpret cross-sectional views to improve decision making and improve treatment outcomes
- Become familiar with legal issues pertaining to 3D imaging

Remember when CT films were large and bulky? Remember when implant companies gave us plastic overlays with implant icons scaled to 125% to account for distortion? Remember when CT scans were more oddity than commonplace? That was then, dental cone beam scans are now.
In this lecture, Dr. Alan Winter challenges that cone-beam volumetric tomography (CBCT) is rapidly becoming the standard of care for three-dimensional diagnoses of both simple and complex dental treatments. One of the first surgeons to own and operate a dental CT scanner, this comprehensive lecture discusses how this technology has become an integral part of everyday treatment planning not only in surgery but also in all facets of dentistry including restorative, endodontic and orthodontic practices.
Dr. Winter presents clear and concise information on the benefits of dental cone beam scanners and the drawbacks of medical CT machines and what the dentist's responsibility is to interpret CT studies.
Upon completion of this course, Learners will:
- Learn the differences between 2D and 3D images
- Become familiar with the benefits of 3D imaging
- Become familiar with the use of surgical templates
- Become familiar with the relative amounts of radiation from cone beam scanners
- Appreciate how utilizing 3D imaging improves outcomes, reduces risk, and lessens stress
- Have a clearer understanding of the ramifications of not referring patients for 3D imaging.
