The placement of dental implants is a key step in the rehabilitation of patients with teeth loss. Factors which are traditionally taken into account when placing dental implants are the general performance state of the organism, the volume and quality of the bone tissue available, the biotype of the oral mucous membrane, etc. Increased requirements to the quality of implantological treatment primarily include the increase of an implant long-term survival, prophylaxis of a bone resorption and higher aesthetic indices of a prosthodontic construction. Achievement of the mentioned indices is possible in case of adequate positioning of implants considering the future prosthodontic construction: parallelism of implants, depth of their immersion, fixing screw position.
Objective: to define the key stages of the design of dental surgical templates and protocols for their clinical use. Material and methods. In this article the principles of designing surgical navigation templates for dental implantation were formulated independently of the CBCT type and planning software.
Conclusion. The article shows the key stages of the surgical navigation templates planning and their peculiarities, which allows to avoid the errors of the virtual planned implants position transferring at the insertion stage. Key words: dental implants, implant positioning, surgical template, navigation surgery
