The aim of this paper was to analyze the accuracy of computer-guided template-based implant dentistry by comparing implant position in the virtual project and that actual reached in the bones. For this purpose we considered a study involving 17 healthy patients subjected to an implant surgical session with the insertion of implants with an external connection. Data from this study do not follow a well defined sampling procedure, and (multivariate) data do not follow a (multivariate) normal distribution, thus traditional parametric approaches were not recommend. Analysis with a non- parametric procedure based on permutation tests and nonparametric combination methodology revealed that significant discrepancies exist between the planned and actual implant position.

Abstract

The aim of this paper was to analyze the accuracy of computer-guided template-based implant dentistry by comparing implant position in the virtual project and that actual reached in the bones. For this purpose we considered a study involving 17 healthy patients subjected to an implant surgical session with the insertion of implants with an external connection. Data from this study do not follow a well defined sampling procedure, and (multivariate) data do not follow a (multivariate) normal distribution, thus traditional parametric approaches were not recommend. Analysis with a non- parametric procedure based on permutation tests and nonparametric combination methodology revealed that significant discrepancies exist between the planned and actual implant position.
