Here at FamilyONE Dental, we use image guided surgery to plan and place our dental implants, ensuring you receive a smooth and more comfortable treatment that will achieve optimal results.
What Is Image Guided Surgery?
Image guided surgery uses advanced diagnostics that include OPG x-rays and a cone beam CT scan that produces highly detailed 3-D images of your jaws. Using this information our dentist can precisely plan the placement of each implant, ensuring it is inserted at exactly the right position to provide good functional and aesthetic results while avoiding important structures in your jawbone including nerves and blood vessels.
Once your implant surgery is planned, a surgical stent is produced. This will be used during surgery to accurately replicate the position of each implant identified in your treatment plan. All planning is done behind the scenes so that when the time comes for your surgery it should be quicker and smoother, aiding faster healing.
