This paper describes a methodology through digital planning and computed tomography for the purpose of making surgical guides for insertion of skeletal anchorage devices in dentistry. Mini-orthodontic screws for anchorage are inserted virtually in the region of interest located between the teeth of the second premolar and first molar bilaterally. DICOM images were converted to STL format and overlaid by scanning the upper plaster model in order to plan the surgical guide virtually.
