Computer Guided Implant Placement

Guided implant surgery allows for the placement of an implant. Utilizing computer driven data. In preparation for this procedure a radiographic scan and an impression of the jaw is taken. With the use of a computer this information determines the size of the implant and the angle of placement. A stent is then made which will be placed in the patient’s mouth As a guide for the placement of the implant. This procedure allows for the placement of an implant without surgery or the need for sutures.
