What is computer-guided surgery?
Guided implant surgery is the process of planning the implant surgery on a computer using the patient’s 3D CT image. The conventional method of using the patient’s standard x-ray to plan implant surgery cannot transfer the planning exactly as planned, however, guided implant surgery can transfer the plan as exactly as Dr. Mellas planned on the computer. To carry out the surgery exactly as the surgery plan, a custom surgical guide is made from this extensive plan.
Computer-guided implant surgery represents a giant step forward in the replacement of teeth with dental implants. Using Computerized Tomography (CT) Scan techniques and 3-D imaging, Dr. Mellas can now visualize the placement of dental implants in three dimensions. This eliminates the guesswork involved in determining what parts of the jawbone offer the best sites for dental implant placement.
It also allows Dr. Mellas to create a restoration prior to surgery and place the restoration on the day of the surgery. Computer-guided implant surgery provides greater patient satisfaction and simplifies the dental implant treatment process.
This technique has revolutionized the industry and provides a more accurate and safer positioning of dental implants, giving your permanent teeth in hours, not months.
