Guided Dental Implant Surgery

Advances in digital technologies allow virtual planning and the fabrication of highly accurate surgical guides that facilitate precise implant positioning. This is done via a cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) with a radiographic guide that can later be converted to a surgical guide.

There are some obvious advantages of surgical guides, namely:

    • Flapless approach to placement of implant, therefore less post surgical bleeding and faster healing.
    • Customized guide for each patient.
    • Ideal placement of implant considering available bone.
    • Improved patient confidence in the procedure

Guided implant surgery is often done on patients demand or when the dentist wants to confirm the placement of implant prior to drilling.
