Online Article: Implant Placement Under Dynamic Navigation Using Trace Registration: Case Presentations
Scheyer, E. Todd / Mandelaris, George A. / McGuire, Michael K. / AlTakriti, Mohamad A. / Stefanelli, Luigi V.
Trace registration is a new, alternative registration method for dynamic navigation implant surgery that eliminates the need for an artificial fiducial marker and stent to be present in the CBCT scan, substituting it with other high-contrast landmarks such as teeth, implants, or abutments. Clinical advantages include a streamlined, simplified workflow with fewer opportunities for error; elimination of presurgical steps associated with stent fabrication and imaging; and reduction in radiation risk. Sufficient high-contrast intraoral structures are a prerequisite for using this technique. This case series presents the trace registration protocol and workflow and reports on cases that demonstrate the application of this technology, including postoperative placement accuracy evaluation.
