Objectives- To evaluate the maxilla, mandible, and cortical plates on computerized tomographic (CT) scans to achieve accurate three-dimensional bone thickness measurements. Setting and Sample Population- We selected the CT scans of 25 subjects (among 102), aged 18-58years (10 men, 15 women), with nearly complete dentition. Material and Methods- We performed interradicular and bucco-lingual (including cortical plate thickness) measurements in dental areas distal to the canines in both alveolar arches, at three levels (5, 8, and 11mm) from the alveolar ridge. Results- The mean thicknesses of the cortical plates in the maxilla were 1.10mm buccally and 1.27mm on the palatal side (p
