According to a new technology in the planning of endo-osseous implantation, based on a new CT-software for evaluation of the bone structure of the jaws, anatomico-morphological changes after the loss of teeth are measured much more accurately than with conventional methods like the panoramic take intraoral x-ray or conventional tomography. 30 mandibles and 22 maxillae of 36 patients were examined. Besides the topographic course of the mandibular canal and the location of the foramen mentale, the anatomic structures as the important aspects for planning endo-osseous implants are seen more accurately. It is now possible to recognise morphological changes with paraxial reconstructions in a very short time more clearly and precisely than with former techniques.
