When placing dental implants it’s vital to get them in exactly the right position and to do this we use image guided surgery. By meticulously planning your treatment, we can ensure the procedure is smoother, more successful and more comfortable for you.
As part of the planning process for your implant surgery, we take detailed diagnostic tests that include a cone beam CT scan. This produces high quality 3-D images of your jaws, allowing us to determine the exact position for each dental implant. We have to avoid important structures in your jawbone, at the same time making sure the implant is angled correctly to provide good functional and aesthetic results once it is restored. After we have pinpointed the right position for your dental implant we make a surgical guide that will be used during surgery. This is a precision-made template that helps to ensure your treatment goes exactly as we have planned.
