Introduction: The limited access and visibility, along with proximity of the mandibular canal or maxillary sinus in the posterior region of alveolar ridge makes it difficult to place the implant in ideal angulation. This may lead to imprecise prosthetic rehabilitation due to the extreme angulations and misalignments incurred in the arch of placement. Using a surgical stent designed based on the diagnostic wax up could eliminate most of the clinical and laboratory complications.

Discussion: In this article we are describing a novel technique for fabrication of a stent with dual assembly which helps the implantologist to place implant in predetermined position and angulation in posterior inaccessible areas. This stent guides the head of the hand piece by which the determined path of osteotomy is maintained. Since it is a dual assembly it could be easily inserted in the patient's with reduced oral orifices.

Conclusion: This article provides a description about a technique which helps the implantologist to precisely position the implant effortlessly even in less accessible areas. The implant osteotomy in the posterior maxillary region becomes effortless and more precise using the dual assembly stent. The technique allows the hand piece to be stabilized throughout the osteotomy and hence positioning of the implant in the predetermined angulation without any error.
