Abstract

The height of the jaw bone is a fundamental part of implant therapy prior to surgery.The aim of this study was to compare the mandibular height in cross-sectional tomograms taken from Scanora multimodal unit with that in common panoramic radiographs by measuring the distance between the edentulous bony crest and the inferior border of the mandible in eight edentulous cadaver mandibles.Metal markers were fixed totally 48 points at the edentulous ous bony crest and the inferior border of the mandible. Magnification error was calculated. It was found that there was no significant difference in bone height at all measurement points between both technics (P>0.05).
