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.

He works as a dentist in private practice and UZ Leuven. Currently he is PhD-candidate OMFS-IMPATH, KU Leuven.
The OMFS-IMPATH research group relates to development and validation of surgical tools and image-based solutions to advance in oro-maxillofacial surgery, with an ultimate aim to obtain an optimized treatment outcome while minimizing the peri- and postsurgical risks. A global integration of digital datasets may allow pre-surgical simulations, development of image-based surgical tools and navigation.
