In traditional implant surgery, the dentist uses their best judgement to place implants, at a depth and angle that they believe is optimal. In guided implant surgery, however, the dentist uses digital scans of the patient's mouth to create a 3D model, which then allows the dentist to plan the optimum procedure before carrying it out.
More precise implant placement
We use guided implant surgery because it’s the most reliable way of ensuring accurate and precise implant placement. This very customized way of placing implants ensures higher predictability, minimizes the risk of complications, and results in less invasive surgery—which means shorter recovery times.
How guided implant surgery works
As with all complex procedures, it begins with an in-person consultation. During this meeting, the dentist will take a scan of your mouth—which is used to create a custom, personalized 3D surgical guide for your treatment. Then, the doctor will use this guide to perform the implant surgery.
