Optimal Precision in Implant Placement

When curating a treatment plan for dental implants, oral surgeons must make numerous decisions. They must select the appropriate type and size, select the perfect location for implantation, and make several other decisions. Most of these decisions depend on the quality and quantity of the patient’s jawbone. In traditional implant surgery, the oral surgeon must surgically expose the area to plan the treatment. But thanks to CT imaging, the surgeon can place the implant with optimal precision without exposing the area.

Benefits of CT Guided Surgery:

  • Patients and surgeons have a better understanding of what the surgery will entail
  • Makes it possible to select the ideal location for the implants
  • Eliminates the need to expose the jawbone to plan the treatment
  • Improves the functional and aesthetic outcome of the surgery
  • Minimizes the risk of unwanted side effects and complications
  • More predictable results and treatment costs

What is CT Guided Surgery?

CT-guided surgery is an advanced dental implant technique that relies on information offered by three-dimensional CT imaging. Based on the findings of the CT scan, the oral surgeon curates a personalized treatment plan on specialized computer software. The information is sent to a computer-generated surgical template, which guides the implant tools in the precise location of the treatment plan, turning the surgeon’s treatment plan into reality.

Thanks to the CT scan, the surgeon gains a comprehensive understanding of the patient’s jawbone structure, which allows them to identify the precise location for implant placement. Identifying the optimal location for dental implantation can also help the surgeon avoid important anatomical components, thus minimizing the risk of complications. CT-guided surgery takes the guesswork out of the equation, ensuring predictable and safe results.
