TENORIO, Jefferson da Rocha; SOUZA, Eliziane Sampaio de; GERBI, Marleny Elizabeth Martinez  e  VASCONCELOS, Belmiro Cavalcanti do Egito. Prototyping and guided surgery in implantology: literature review. RFO UPF [online]. 2015, vol.20, n.1, pp. 110-114. ISSN 1413-4012.

Objective: The objective of this study is to perform a literature review describing the benefits, advantages, and disadvantages of prototyping models for the planning and reduction of surgical time. Literature review: Rapid Prototyping is a technology that allows the morphological duplication of anatomical structures in real scale, obtained by imaging analysis and resulting in the so-called biomodels, which allow tridimensional visualization of complex anatomical structures, facilitating the pre-operative planning of implants. Final Considerations: Prototyping is widely used in Dentistry, more specifically in implantology and oral maxillofacial surgery. It is an applicable technique that allows the performance of guided surgery. These prototypes also allow the reduction of the surgical time, time of anesthesia required, and the risk of infection. In implantology, the prototyping technique facilities the attainment of surgical guides, which is a differential for obtaining a perfect reverse planning, that is, good dynamics and pleasant esthetics. Prototyping and guided surgery represent a new horizon in implantology, where surgical procedures become easier, safer, and more predictable. This procedure enables optimizing the time of surgical intervention, and creating a higher degree of confidence due to the simulations and information obtained by the biomodels.
