Abstract

In a previous work, we developed a general purpose framework to support the three-dimensional reconstruction, rendering and processing of biomedical images, 3D Bio-IPF. In this paper we present a structured component of 3D Bio-IPF, the plug-in Implant, to model customised dental implants on a three-dimensional representation of the oral cavity derived from diagnostic images. The proposed tool was tested on different cases and a result is reported. It has been proven it is very effective for dental surgery planning, implant design and positioning. Moreover, if integrated with a position indicator system and a numerically positionable drilling machine, it could be employed for semi-automatic surgery.
