Dental Implants - Guided Surgery
What is Guided Surgery?
Guided surgery is an implant treatment concept where the planning and treatment execution is “prosthetically-guided” by the project of the definitive restoration. The digital treatment-planning element of guided surgery allows us to begin with the ideal restoration and work down to the implant position. While this approach can be adopted in freehand cases, the precision and control afforded by guided surgery enable the clinician to position and angulate the implant for the most aesthetic restorative outcome possible.
What are the benefits?
After taking a CT scan of the area, to assess the bone volumes, and a digital scan of the teeth, to assess the tooth setup and the soft tissues. The scans are merged using Nobelclinician Software allowing a careful assessment of the case taking into account the final tooth setup, the bone availability and the soft tissue profile. Once the planning has been discussed and accepted with the patient, a computergenerated surgical template will be fabricated with a keyhole.
On the day of the procedure, the guide will be seated on the patient’s mouth and the surgical implant preparation will be done through the keyhole enabling the implant placement exactly at the predetermined depth and angulation, eliminating virtually any possible risk.
