Computer Guided Implant Placement Aces Traditional Imaging
One 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.
How Computer Guided Implant Placement Excels
Computer guided implant placement 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 like NobelGuide™
NobelGuide™ is a ground-breaking advance that maps out treatment and surgical execution. Developed by Nobel Biocare, it 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 implant experience for virtually every type of tooth replacement.
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.
In comparison to traditional treatments, computer guided implant placement will significantly reduce soreness and inflammation. Additionally, this revolutionary technique will reduce the frequency and length of appointments needed, and that mean 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. Dr. Karras and his staff take pride in practicing the most highly advanced techniques and incorporating cutting edge technology for the benefit of their patients.
