Abstract [en]

The aim of this systematic review is to compile current scientific literature on computer guided dental implant surgery to evaluate its limitations and advantages.

Searches for articles was done in PubMed with both free text terms and Mesh-terms. The search generated 1949 hits, of which 28 articles were included in the study. Accuracy, marginal bone loss, survival rate and patient centered outcomes were investigated.

881 patients were included in this study. 4,226 implants were inserted of which 3,572 were inserted with computer guided surgery. Mean angular deviation was 4.79 degrees. Coronal and apical deviation was 1.23 mm and 1.54 mm respectively. Mean marginal bone loss was 1.1 mm with a range of 0.55-1.9 mm. The overall survival rate for implants inserted with the computer guided technique was 97.2 per cent with a range of 89.7-100 %. Mean survival rate of the conventionally inserted implants was 98.4 per cent with a range of 96-100 %.

Computer guided surgery is a reliable technique for implant planning and insertion. The results show similar outcomes regarding marginal bone and survival rate when compared to conventional technique. When comparing morbidity between the two techniques, less pain is reported in the computer guided group which is beneficial for the patient’s overall experience. However, an obstacle to truly evaluate the possible benefits with computer guided surgery is the lack of articles with a high evidence grade highlighting the need for more studies in this area.
