You can plan a really accurate treatment procedure with the help of the computer guided surgery software because it will allow you to manipulate and see the images of the jawbone and the surrounding tissues of the patient. You will be able to see the vital structures, available bones, the root anatomy and the proximity of the adjacent teeth, and the thickness of the soft tissues with the images from the cone beam CT scan.
