Guided Implant Surgery
Cone-Beam Guided Implant Surgery allows your procedure to be ‘performed’ in advance of your surgery but on the computer. The majority of the work occurs when you are not in the dental office. In the planning stages of implant treatment, a cone-beam scan is taken in our office. Drs Colon, Dozier and Barnett then utilize advanced computer programs such as SimPlant, Anatomage and Straumann Cares guided surgery to place implants within the 3D representation of your mouth in the safest and most ideal positions. These implant positions can be shared in advance with your general dentist so that treatment plan is ideal. A surgical guide is then created for the procedure that will only allow implant to be placed in the predetermined locations. The goal is a prosthetic driven implant planning that supports predictable results and enhanced precision while improving all around communication.
Guided Implant Surgery is typically performed in much less time. Less incisions and sutures are usually needed and therefore post-operative swelling and discomfort is decreased. This state-of-the-art procedure can be used for patients ranging from needing one implant to patients in need of full mouth rehabilitation.
