Our computer-guided implant surgery is used in conjunction with 3D imaging X-rays. A machine takes a three-dimensional scan of your jaw and sinuses. Now, with a clear, full view of your mouth, Dr. Kimberly or Dr. Jed will evaluate your needs and make a diagnosis and develop a treatment plan.
The dental 3D imaging is used to do your implant surgery virtually, and then our laboratory -nSequence® - prints a unique surgical template to help guide the instruments during surgery. All aspects of the surgery are planned out before it begins; the surgery is done virtually and then a dry run is performed in the lab to make sure that everything will proceed perfectly. This helps eliminate the risk of errors and allows the procedure to go more smoothly and quickly. And this method of surgery is less invasive and traumatic for you, with quicker healing times and less swelling.
Do you We use an in-house 3D imager for diagnostic and planning needs, as opposed to 2D X-rays. Anyone that has had more than a few dental X-rays knows they can make you literally want to gag. But 3D imagining is far more comfortable for you. Also, this method allows for more accuracy with diagnosis and the entire dental implant procedure - and accuracy is paramount.
Our imaging machine captures a 3D scan of your jaws and sinuses. From the 3D image, we are able to virtually perform your surgery. Then our implant lab partner - nSequence - prints a precise surgical template that fits into your mouth to guide the drill – like tracing paper for the dentist. With a guide for the drill, there is no guess-work, reducing the risk of miscalculations and shortening the time you’re in the chair.
