Having marginal bone stability surrounding the dental implant increases its survival rate. We have come to rely on the CBCT as a pre-surgical
assessment tool for our implant cases. After preliminary assessment the need for bone graft can be decided. In our patient pool only seven
percent of our patients needed pre-implant bone rehabilitation. We will demonstrate the stability of the marginal bone levels around implants that have been followed up for a minimum of five years.

Learning Objectives: At completion of this presentation, participants should be able to:
1. Understand the added benefit of using digital radiography as a measuring tool for marginal bone levels around implants in three dimensions
2. Explore the factors that aid in maintaining marginal bone levels around short press fit implants
3. Appreciate why only seven percent of patients needed bone graft prior to implant placement
