This enabled us to observe the morphology around the tooth and dental alveolar bone in all dimensions, including the cemento-enamel junction (CEJ), root surface and dental alveolar crest, as well as the relationships between these areas, and assess the distance between the CEJ and the coronal level of the alveolar bone crests (the micro-CT bone levels) at 12 sites, including the mesio- and disto-buccal sites, the mesio- and disto-palatal sites of the right and left second maxillary molars, and the disto-buccal and disto-lingual sites of the right and left first mandibular molars on reconstructed three-dimensional micro-CT images.
A close up view indicates the required angulation of the driver both mesio- distally and inciso-gingivally, an orientation that was predetermined on the model.
