Guided Dental Implant Surgery
Guided dental implant surgery is a sophisticated and precise technique used in implant dentistry to plan and execute dental implant placement with a high level of accuracy. This technology-driven approach involves the use of 3D imaging, computer software, and surgical guides to ensure optimal implant positioning, minimal invasiveness, and reduced risk of complications.
Benefits of Guided Dental Implant Surgery
Initial Assessment and Diagnosis:
Our dental specialist conducts a thorough examination of the patient's oral health, including 3D cone-beam scans and digital impressions. This data is used to plan the implant procedure.
Virtual Treatment Planning
Advanced software is employed to create a virtual model of the patient's jaw, allowing for precise planning of implant placement. The dentist can visualize the ideal implant locations and angles.
Surgical Guide Fabrication
A surgical guide is designed and fabricated using the digital treatment plan. This guide serves as a template during surgery, ensuring that implants are placed in the exact positions as planned.
During surgery, the surgical guide is used to guide the dentist in placing the dental implants with precision. The guide minimizes trauma to surrounding tissues and reduces the risk of errors.
Confirmation and Adjustments
The dentist verifies the implant positions using the surgical guide and may make any necessary adjustments to ensure the implants are correctly placed.
After implant placement and healing, prosthetic components (abutments and crowns) are attached to the implants to restore function and aesthetics.
