Surgically guided implant placement is one of the latest innovative solutions that we offer to our patients. No more painful procedures, healing complications and worries about the results!
This state-of-the-art method allows to plan the most appropriate position of an implant, based on a 3D virtual model of patient’s jaws. The implant is placed in a single session, using a special guide for maximum precision, safety and the best possible results.
How it works
Step 1. CT scan is performed to obtain a 3D image of the patient’s bone.
Step 2. The dentist places a virtual implant into the 3D image of the patient’s jaws, choosing the best possible size and position.
Step 3. Based on the doctor’s planning, a surgical guide is custom-made for each individual patient.
Step 4. The implant is placed using a surgical guide. This procedure is as minimally invasive as possible for faster healing.
What are the advantages of guided implant placement procedure?
- Accuracy. Near-perfect placement of an implant in the most appropriate location.
- Safety and predictability. No more guesswork! The treatment outcome can be predicted based on the 3-D model of the patient’s teeth.
