Mostafa EzEldeen, KU Leuven, Presents: “3D Planning for Tooth Autotransplantation and 3D Printing of Surgical Templates”

Loss of permanent teeth is a particular challenge in children considering that alveolar bone growth is not yet complete and treatment approaches should adapt to the developmental changes in the oral region to have the potential for long-term survival. This could be realized via autotransplantation, which is a biological approach for tooth replacement in young children. This presentation will introduce the use of a CBCT-based surgical planning and transfer technique including a stereolithographic surgical guide and tooth replica to enhance the outcome of autotransplantation procedures.
