All of the preliminary work will be completed prior to the patient coming in for surgery.
The 3D Imaging System
The 3D Imaging System photographs the entire jaw and joint. The procedure is accomplished in minutes. In the past, numerous x-rays must be taken of the area to determine the length of the implant, the quality of the implant, the location of the nerves, and the amount of bone available. The 3D Imaging System does not require x-rays to develop because the system is digital. The images are available within minutes.
The dentist can draw on the image to determine the best fit for the implant. In the laboratory, a surgical stent is made in the lab on the model. The doctor will determine precisely where to place the stent on the model so that no cuts are necessary to determine precise implant placement. This process enables faster recovery times and less pain afterwards.
