Guided Surgery for Dental Implants
Computer guided implant surgery represents a giant step forward in the replacement of teeth with dental implants. Using Computerized Tomography (CT) Scan techniques and 3-D imaging, dentists can now visualize the placement of dental implants in three dimensions. This eliminates the guesswork involved determining what parts of the jawbone offer the best sites for dental implant placement.
It also allows Dr. Khoury to create the permanent restoration prior to surgery and place the restoration the day of the surgery. Computer guided implant surgery provides greater patient satisfaction and simplifies the dental implant treatment process.
The actual implant placement and final restoration is completed in hours, not months. Often referred to as Teeth-in-an-Hour™, this treatment option is made possible through guided surgery and planning and minimizes trauma to the patients limiting surgical access.
Benefits of Computer Guided Surgery –Precision … Accuracy … Success
This revolutionary system offers a more accurate and safer positioning of dental implants and provides the patient with permanent teeth in about an hour. This technology enables your doctor to get an advanced, detailed look at the interior sections of the jaw bone, surrounding tissue and the nerves. These CT scan machines are the same as those used to aid surgeons in joint replacement procedures.
With our award winning 3D imaging software, Invivo allows you to virtually treatment plan your implant cases using CBCT DICOM data. Invivo is the leading choice for top CBCT manufacturers, leading lecturers, and major universities around the world. Visualize the dental arch in 3D and establish the ideal drilling trajectory and depth for every case. With our integrated Restoration design module, you can implement restoratively-driven implant planning; design provisional abutments and crowns based on your treatment plan before surgery.
Guided implant surgery has the following advantages:
- The followings are needed for guided implant surgery.
- Medical or Cone-beam CT Implant planning software Guided implant surgery drill kit Custom surgical template Surgery can be precise, safe, and predictable.
- Surgery time is shorter.
- Generally carried out as a flapless surgery and shorter recovery time for the patient.
- Less invasion, blood, and pain for the patient. Immediate loading is possible. Bone grafts can be minimized.
