Computer guided implant placement
Computer Guided Implant Placement utilizes NobelClinician™, CoDiagnostix™ & SimPlant® software along with our in office i-CAT unit. These systems help us provide great advances in dental implant treatment planning. These softwares utilize an interactive 3D computer imaging system that guides the doctors at Farber Center in implant surgery.
With computer guided implant surgery, Doctors Farber, Chondrogiannis, and Batalias can actually do a virtual surgery before ever touching your mouth. The information gathered is extremely accurate, allowing us to visualize the precise placement of simulated implants. We are provided with a 3 dimensional view of your jaw anatomy. It helps us locate important internal structures and also allows the measurement bone quality and quantity directly from these images.
With the use of NobelClinician™, a final prosthesis can be made prior to your visit, which can be inserted at the same time that the implants are placed. This is a technology called Teeth in an Hour™.
How does Computer Guided Surgery Work?
- Office Visit 1
Impressions of your upper and lower jaw are used to help plan the future location of your new teeth.
- Office Visit 2
A guide/stent will be fit to your mouth (where tooth replacement is necessary). This stent will be used to help capture the contours of gums and the location of your future teeth.
- Office Visit 3
A High-tech ConeBeam CT Scan is performed to gather digital information about the jaw bone with our i-CAT unit.
- In the Lab (No Visit required!)
We process the digital information gathered from your CT Scan using cutting-edge technologies to create a 3-D Virtual model of your jaw.
- Office Visit 4 – Final Visit
About three weeks later, you return for a one hour incision-free surgery for the placement of your dental implants into your jaw. The implants will be secured to the new set of teeth at your restorative dentist office within 24 hours.
Your implants act like natural teeth not only helping to prevent further jaw bone loss, but allowing your bone to become stronger and more dense.
computer guided dental implant placement is extremely accurate, safe, and allows for virtually painless dental implant treatment, allowing you to walk out with beautiful teeth today.
