Abstract

A novel technique using the patient's existing complete dentures as a radiographic guide for diagnosis and treatment planning in implant dentistry is presented. Tin foil is used to cover the denture teeth before the radiographic scan is performed. Advantages of the described technique include its cost-effectiveness, simplicity, efficiency, and lack of need to modify or duplicate the patient's existing dentures. A disadvantage of the technique is that it serves only as a radiographic guide.
