    Background: Implants are becoming the future trend for replacement of missing teeth. The surgical procedure requires prior treatment planning and knowledge of the surgical site. The present study was conducted to assess and compare various techniques that are used for the measurement of alveolar ridge dimensions prior to treatment planning for implants. Aim: The aim of this study was to compare direct intra-operative ridge measurements (DIRM) using vernier calipers to measurements taken by alveolar ridge mapping (RM) ,Computed Tomography (CT) and Cone-Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) for measuring alveolar bone dimensions prior to implant placement. Material and Methods:. An acrylic stent was prepared for each patient. The acrylic stent provided buccal, lingual and crestal sites for consistent measurements of alveolar ridge dimensions through ridge mapping (RM). A conventional CT and CBCT were taken and these three techniques were compared to DIRM. Statistical analysis used: The study data were analyzed using one sample T- test to compare the mean absolute difference with 0. Pearson’s correlation was used to assess the linear relationship with DIRM. Comparisons were made between RM, CT, CBCT with DIRM using a Bland-Altman plot and pictorially represented with a bar plot. Results: Data were compared using bar graph. RM was found to have more correlation to DIRM than the other techniques. However CBCT had lesser variations from DIRM when compared to a conventional CT. The latter two techniques, that is, CT and CBCT are useful for 3-dimensional information of the surgical site prior to implant placement.Conclusion: Ridge mapping can be used effectively for measurement of alveolar bone width. Additional information about the surgical site can be obtained from a conventional CT or a CBCT.
