Surgically guided implant placement in Whittier and Montebello
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.
