AbstractA precise radiographic evaluation of the local bone dimensions and morphology is important for preoperative planning of implant placement. The purpose of this retrospective study was to analyze dimensions and morphology of edentulous sites in the posterior mandible using cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) images. This retrospective radiographic study measured the bone width (BW) of the mandible at three locations on CBCT scans for premolars (PM1, PM2) and molars (M1, M2): at 1 mm and 4 mm below the most cranial point of the alveolar crest (BW1, BW2) and at the superior border of the mandibular canal (BW3). Furthermore, the height (H) of the alveolar process (distance between the measuring points BW1 and BW3), as well as the presence of lingual undercuts, were analyzed. A total of 56 CBCTs met the inclusion criteria, resulting in a sample size of 127 cross sections. There was a statistically significant increase from PM1 to M2 for the BW2 (P < .001), which was not present for BW1 and BW3 values. For the height of the alveolar process, the values exhibited a decrease from PM1 to M2 sites. Sex was a statistically significant parameter for H (P = .001) and for BW1 (P = .03). Age was not a statistically significant parameter for bone width (BW1: P = .37; BW2: P = .31; BW3: P = .51) or for the height of the alveolar process (P = .41) in the posterior mandible. Overall, 73 (57.5%) edentulous sites were evaluated to be without visible lingual undercuts; 13 (10.2%) sites exhibited lingual undercuts classified as influential for implant placement. Precise evaluation of the alveolar crest by cross-sectional imaging is of great value to analyze vertical and buccolingual bone dimensions in different locations in the posterior mandible. In addition, CBCTs are valuable to diagnosing the presence of and potential problems caused by lingual undercuts prior to implant placement.
