Comparison between flapless-guided and conventional surgery for implant placement: a 12-month randomized clinical trial
Research Published: 19 November 2022 Clinical Oral Investigations (2022)Cite this article Abstract Objectives The study was aimed at comparing implants installed with guided and conventional surgery. Material and methods Twenty-nine total edentulous patients were selected, and maxillary contralateral quadrants were randomly assigned to static computer-aided implant surgery (S-CAIS): flapless computer-guided surgery, and conventional surgery (CS): flap surgery with conventional planning. Tomography scans were performed at baseline and 10 days after the surgery for deviation measurement, and radiography was done at baseline ...

Improvements in image quality after optimization in digital intraoral radiographs
Conclusions: Optimizing radiographic exposures improves image quality and accuracy in clinical decisions. Practical implications: Improvement in image quality and better accuracy in actual distance of the endodontic file to the radiographic apex coupled with complete cleaning, shaping, and obturation of the canal should lead to better endodontic treatment outcomes.
