Dental implantation is a common procedure in dentistry, and although several factors such as implant design, implant surface, surgical technique, bone type and loading conditions have been shown to influence implant-bone response, the insufficient bone volume in the implantation site is a serious limitation to a good outcome of the procedure. In this study, a patient with the early removal of two opposite molars is considered. A virtual proto-typing model was built to characterize the dimension and the morphology of the patient's maxillofacial structure. This anatomical model was based on hospital scanning data in order to permit an effective reconstruction planning and to infer about the implant's behavior and stability, considering key aspects like implant diameter and length.
