The Authors are proposing the use of computerized tomography for the evaluation of osseous structures of the maxilla and mandible before installation of titanium fixtures. The results indicate that the CT scan can give information about the structure and bone density. The height and the width of the alveolar osseous crests and the relationship with the incisive canal and the mandibular canal are clearly demonstrated. The CT scan can facilitate the measurement of the space available in order to install the titanium fixtures.
