Application of Radiographic Stent for Simplified Placement of Implants in the Mandible
This article aims to present a modified yet simple technique for the placement of implants between the
mandibular foramina with the help of a radiographic stent. A radiographic stent was made on the
patient’s mandibular cast on which two metal balls were fixed at the premolar area and this was then
used to determine the exact position of the mental foramina with the help of a panoramic X-ray. After
visualization of the distance between the metal balls and mental foramina, the radiographic stent was
used as a surgical guide to place implants in the mandible during surgery.
