Taking the Guesswork Out of Implants
Plan for Predictability
Guided surgery is also recommended when placing implants to replace front teeth (as position of implant is crucial to esthetic outcome), placing multiple implants to achieve proper spacing and parallelism of the implants. In these critical situations why take the risk of complications when you can have peace of mind knowing that the implants are placed in the optimal position.
Benefits of Digitally Guided Surgery
- More accurate placement of implant
- Helps avoid damage to nerves, sinus cavities and neighboring teeth
- Improves chances of successful integration of implant
- Prevents your doctor to from having to “eyeball it” or line it up the best they can
- Improves esthetic results
- Allows for precise angulation control which is important when replacing multiple teeth
- Allows for a safer and quicker surgery
Traditional Implant Surgery
- OK for areas where there is plenty of bone and no concerns about nerve or sinus complications
- Relies on hand/eye alignment of doctor
- Not indicated in surgeries where esthetics, lack of bone, proximity of neighboring teeth or anatomical structures is a concern.
- Decrease in success rates in the situations listed above
- In difficult situations, lack of precision due to hand/eye alignment alone could result in damage to surrounding tissues, create need for additional bone grafting procedures other complications
“Tooth in a Day” with 3D Printed Guides
This technique allows for superior development and maintenance of proper soft tissue contours critical to natural esthetics. Outstanding soft tissue healing can start immediately after implant surgery with a patient-specific abutment and temporary crown.
