3D printing for Cone Beam Computed Tomography-guided Tooth Autotransplantation

In this presentation we will go through the process of (Cone Beam Computed Tomography) CBCT-guided tooth autotransplantation starting from image pre-operative process up to post-operative follow-up and long-term outcome. Special attention will be given for the state of art 3D planning based on AI and the specific requirements of tooth replica 3D printing linking this to the treatment outcomes.

A presentation by Mostafa EzEldeen, Consultant Paediatric Dentistry and Special Dental Care and Post-doctoral fellow at OMFS IMPATH research group, KU Leuven.


Question 1: What drives you?
Application of state-of-the-art to serve patients in need, specifically children and adolescents losing their permanent teeth after traumatic injuries

Question 2: Why should the delegate attend your presentation?
I will give insights on the process of CBCT-guided tooth autotransplantation. The Tooth transplantation team at UZ Leuven has more then 15 years experience in applying 3D imaging, 3D planning and 3D printing serving patients with tooth loss or or missing teeth.

Question 3: What emerging technologies / trends do you see as having the greatest potential in the short and long run?
AI applications, 3D printing and bio-printing

Question 4: What kind of impact do you expect them to have?
Help in simplifying and enhancing the treatment outcomes

About Mostafa EzEldeent
Mostafa EzEldeen obtained his Bachelor of Dental Medicine and Surgery (2007) from Mansoura University, Egypt and Master in Dentistry (2013), at the KU Leuven, Belgium. Further, he obtained a specialization in Paediatric Dentistry and Special Dental care (2012), at the KU Leuven. In 2013, he obtained the diploma of Postgraduate studies in Advanced Medical Imaging at the KU Leuven. In 2021, he obtained his PhD in Biomedical Sciences with a dissertation titled “Dental Tissue Regeneration in Children, Can We Mimic Nature?”. He works as a dentist in private practice and UZ Leuven (Department of Paediatric Dentistry and Special Dental Care). His research topics are; assessment of the patterns of healing in teeth and bone after regenerative processes using Cone Beam Computed Tomography, developing of reliable teeth segmentation methods, CBCT-guided tooth autotransplantation, bio-3D printing and chemokine-mediated dental tissue regeneration. He has received the; 1st place research award from the International Association of Dental Traumatology (2014), Journal of Endodontics Award (2016) for the best article in the category of clinical research, and the Belgian Albert Joachim Award in the Odontostomatology (2018).

About OMFS IMPATH research group, KU Leuven
The OMFS-IMPATH research group relates to the development and validation of surgical tools and image-based solutions to advance in oromaxillofacial surgery, with an ultimate aim to obtain an optimized treatment outcome while minimizing the peri- and postsurgical risks, such as neurovascular trauma.
In order to achieve this, global integration of digital datasets will enable the creation of a virtual replica of the patient. This may allow full simulation of the surgery as well as of its expected outcome. While the latter may help to further modify and finetune the planned surgery, the former integrated virtual data may allow presurgical simulations, development of image-based surgical tools, and navigation.

Mostafa EzEldeen is speaker at the 2022 edition of the 3D Dental Printing Conference.
