Breakthrough Technology: Computer Guided Implant Placement

Computer Guided Implant Placement Aces Traditional Imaging

computer guided implant surgeryOne of today’s most sophisticated and highly successful procedures is called computer guided implant placement, also known as computer guided implant surgery. It incorporates a person’s CT imaging to plot out the best implant surgery options. Traditional x-ray imaging is limited, making exact implementation of a surgical plan hard. In contrast to the conventional x-ray imaging, computer guided implant surgery allows for uncommon accuracy and precision. The advantages of this break-through technology over traditional imaging are many.

Creating Bone Regeneration with Bone Morphogenetic Protein (BMP)

How Bone Regeneration with Bone Morphogenetic Protein Works

When a tooth is lost, or when an implant fails, the resulting defect may not allow for implant placement. In cases where the defect is large, affects both height and width, or the base of remaining bone is small, advanced methods may be required to successfully reconstruct the lost bone.

One of the most predictable methods of bone regeneration is the use of titanium mesh along with Bone Morphogenetic Protein, or BMP, specifically, BMP-2. BMP-2 is one of the body’s most potent growth factors and acts to transform mesenchymal stem cells into osteoblasts, the cells that produce bone.

BMP-2 is provided in a powder that is reconstituted under sterile conditions and then bound to collagen sponges that slowly release the protein into the area. Because the collagen sponges are very soft and pliable, we need a way to maintain the space required for bone growth and to form the shape of the new bone. Titanium mesh is used for this purpose.

The mesh is formed into the desired shape and secured to the existing bone with micro screws. The space between the mesh and existing bone is filled with the Bone Morphogenetic Protein impregnated collagen sponges, as well as some bone mineral. The healing process is slow, 6-8 months, however, the results are impressive.

 A Cast Study of Bone Regeneration Done with BMP

The case presented below shows a defect that resulted from the failure of an implant placed by a different surgeon. It required reconstruction of both height and width, and the remaining bone was very deficient in some areas. For these reasons, BMP-2 with titanium mesh was chosen to reconstruct this patient’s bone, leading to successful implant placement.

Computer Guided Implant Surgery Uses the Below Equipment and Techniques:

Medical or Cone-beam CT

Guided implant surgery dental implant kit

A custom surgical template designed for every individual patient

Implant development software

3-D CT Scan Software

3-d CT Scan software helps  map out treatment and surgical execution. Our technology used at the Center For Oral Surgery And Dental Implants integrates 3-D CT scanning, advanced CAD-CAM software, and biomedical engineering. It meshes in concert, allowing us unmatched accurateness and effortlessness in providing our patients the highest quality computer guided dental implant placement and for virtually every type of tooth replacement.

Computer Guided Implant Surgery offers Superior Safety and Predictability

When using computer guided implant surgery, we map out your treatment to the highest degree of quality. Using this technique allows for superior safety and predictability beyond what can be expected of “freehand” implant procedures.

Guided Implant Surgery Significantly Reduces Soreness and Inflammation

In comparison to traditional treatments, guided implant placement will significantly reduce soreness and inflammation. Additionally, this revolutionary technique will reduce the frequency and length of appointments needed, and that means far less intrusion in your daily life. Taking advantage of this innovative technique when considering your options for dental implants will produce benefits beyond any that can be offered by conventional methods.

If you are interested in oral surgery options and want to set up a consultation with Dr. Karras, please call 847-677-6647 or visit us at 6677 N Lincoln Ave #100, Lincolnwood, IL 60712
