The following is an exerpt from the article:
Guided planning surgery (GPS) programs are a valuable tool for the general dentist to help direct the proper implant orientation in order to prevent errors during the surgical procedure. Software exists that can plan implant and restorative tooth positions, auto-detect nerves, warn of proximity to vital structures, caution against incorrect implant locations, and fabricate surgical guides.
