As we have mentioned before, here, in Oval Dental Clinic, Use the latest technology in all our procedures, and our Implantology department is no exception.
We use surgical guided Implants, which is: When a dentist performs guided dental implant surgery, he or she uses advanced machinery and imaging technology to “guide” or assist them in manufacturing and placing dental implants more efficiently, precisely, and accurately. Computer guided implant surgery is substantially faster, and often results in the patient receiving his or her new teeth in a single dental office visit.
The technology commonly used in computer-guided dental implant surgery include 3D imaging, computerized topography (CT) scans, CAD and CAM computer imaging and digital x-rays.
The following is the general procedure for guided implant surgery:
• A CT scan of the patient is obtained, and the dentist and his or her assistant will plan a customized surgical treatment plan for that patient.
• The specialist will then use an advanced computer technology to fabricate models of the crowns to be placed using 3D imaging technology and CAD digital design software.
• The dental lab receives the models and uses CAM software to digitally design the restorations.
• The new crowns are then placed on the implants by the dentist. Finally, digital x-rays are taken to ensure that the implants and crowns are properly placed and dimensioned.
