Guided Dental Implant Surgery
The Planning Process
Guided dental implant surgery is a precise and customized approach to placing dental implants. The planning process for this type of surgery begins with a thorough, detailed scan using a CBCT (Cone Beam Computed Tomography) scanner, which captures high-resolution, three-dimensional images of the patient's jawbone, teeth, and oral structures. A laboratory uses these images to produce a surgical guide that is personalized and made to precisely match the patient's anatomy.
In order to guarantee the implants are positioned accurately at the correct location, depth and angle, a surgical guide is used throughout the placement operation. This lowers the possibility of problems, speeds up the healing process, and improves the precision and predictability of the procedure.
Benefits and Drawbacks to Guided implant surgery
Although guided implant surgery can cost a bit more and is a bit more time intensive, it remains a popular choice with our patients. As previously mentioned, the procedure's precision, predictability, reduced risk of developing problems, and quicker recovery time make this treatment experience more satisfying.
