To what degree does a 3d CT for dental implants show the internal hardness of a jawbone before the surgery begins? What if implant placement aborted?

CBCT: Has a predictive value for preparation and selection of the patients for dental implants. Based on its radiographic appearance and the resistance at drilling there are 4 types of jaw bone. Type i and ii are the best. Although the surgeon can control most factors associated with implant biointegration, bone density is the one factor that cannot be controlled. If implant is rejected - bone grafting.
