Implant Surgical Guide

What is Guided Implant Surgery?

Guided implant surgery is the process of planning out the whole dental implant procedure by using the patient’s 3D Cone Beam CT scans and 3D digital impressions. One of the biggest factors that makes guided implant surgery a sought for treatment is its predictability. The 3D printed guides allow implants to be placed exactly in the correct position.

Intraoral Scanner for 3D Digital Impressions

Digital impressions represent cutting-edge technology that allows dentists to create a virtual, computer-generated replica of the hard and soft tissues in the mouth using optical scanning devices. The digital technology captures clear and highly accurate impression data in mere minutes, without the need for traditional impression materials. The impression information then is transferred to a computer and used to create surgical guides or restorations.

Cone Beam CT Scanning & Virtual Implant Planning

Dental CT 3D imaging is the standard of care in dental implantology.  This 3D radiographic image provides a detailed mapping of the anatomy so that implants can be placed more quickly, more accurately, and with a much higher level of comfort and safety. Quality, predictability, and reliability of treatment is our priority at Des Plaines Family Dentistry. We are able to provide all that with the use of the CT scan and planning software in our office.
