Abstract

The optimal positioning of oral implants ensures good biomechanical, functional, aesthetic and phonetic results. The concept of surgical guidance in implant dentistry has been developed to bridge the gap between pre-operative treatment planning and surgical site preparation. This article discusses its evolution, from the early surgical guide systems which used only diagnostic casts as reference, to the latest in computer-assisted navigation.
