Photogrammetry

Photogrammetry

Photogrammetry is a technology used to make precise measurements using reference points in photographs. This technology has been introduced to implant dentistry as early as 1994 for the purpose of detecting the marginal adaptation between the prosthesis and the implants. More recently, with the advent of digital technology, commercially available photogrammetry systems provide a new method for creating impressions for edentulous patients, even for complete-arch implant procedures​​.

 

In a comparative study that looked at the accuracy of photogrammetry, intraoral scanning, and conventional impression techniques for complete arch implant rehabilitation, photogrammetry demonstrated the highest accuracy among the three. The accuracy in this context was defined by two parameters: trueness (the deviation between test files and a reference file) and precision (the closeness between test files)​. Despite its complicated operation, the development of digital technology has made the use of photogrammetry more feasible and its accuracy comparable to that of traditional impression techniques, offering new possibilities in the field of dentistry​.

It offers a color system that utilizes digital photography to match the color of natural teeth with dental prosthetics. This system allows for accurate color communication between dentists and dental laboratories, ensuring a consistent and precise color match in dentistry. This is particularly important in the field of aesthetic dentistry where the goal is to create dental restorations that match the patient’s natural teeth as closely as possible. However, more specific details about the procedures and applications of eLab in dentistry are not readily available based on the current search. Further research or direct consultation with dental professionals who use eLab may provide more detailed information​1​.

eLab is a digital platform designed for dentistry that allows for a more efficient and accurate process of fitting dental prosthetics. One of the key features of eLab is the virtual try-in system. This system allows the dental practitioner to take a photograph of the dental crown that they have created, digitally extract it from the image, and then place it into a photograph of the patient’s mouth. This provides a visual representation of how the crown will look in the patient’s mouth before the actual fitting. By doing this, the practitioner can make any necessary adjustments to the crown based on the virtual try-in, rather than having to make adjustments during an actual patient visit. This not only saves time and resources by reducing the number of patient visits required, but it also helps to prevent unnecessary consumption of materials through trial and error during the fitting process.

Surgical Guides

Surgical Guides
Implant surgical guides are tools used in dental implantology to improve the precision and safety of implant placement. They provide a predefined path for the placement of dental implants based on detailed preoperative planning. This planning utilizes 3D imaging technology and computer-aided design (CAD) to create a guide tailored to the patient’s unique oral anatomy.

In the past, dental implants were often placed “freehand,” meaning the dentist would use their judgment and experience to determine the implant location and angle, essentially “eyeballing” the placement. While this method worked reasonably well with highly skilled practitioners, it left a larger margin for error and potential complications. The use of implant surgical guides greatly reduces these risks by providing a clear, precise plan for the procedure, resulting in more predictable outcomes, improved patient comfort, and often better final aesthetic and functional results.
