Targeted Endodontic Microsurgery (TEMS) utilizes trephine burs and 3D-printed surgical guides to achieve osteotomy, root resection and biopsy in a single step. The digital workflow for guide production is marked by conversion of a patient’s physical anatomy into digital data that forms a virtual model upon which a TEMS guide is designed and then 3D-printed. This presentation aims to show several methods for digitally rendering bone, teeth, neuro-vascular structures, and soft tissue, and will then describe how this data is utilized to create of a virtual model within design software. The presentation is aimed to help clinicians communicate meaningfully with a 3D printing lab. Finally, several TEMS cases with treatment planning considerations will be presented.
Describe different ways of digitizing hard and soft tissues for creation of a digital model.
Describe surgical guide design principles for communication with a 3D printing lab.
Describe all clinical phases of guided surgical endodontics to include presurgical evaluation, radiographic evaluation, treatment planning and intraoperative application.
