Making Sense of Dental Implant Surgical Guides

 In Uncategorized

As one of the foremost providers of surgical guides for implant surgery in California, we tend to field a lot of questions about the how and why of these clever, time-saving devices.

The how involves digital imaging, plenty of refinement, and physical production via 3D printing. The why isn’t always self-apparent, which is why we are constantly on the lookout for online resources such as this one, which walks dental surgeons through some of the advantages of using a precision surgical guide during dental implant procedures. Consider:

When placing dental implants, using a surgical guide is always recommended. In addition to aiding in the proper placement of dental implants, surgical guides can help prevent malposition and spacing of dental implants, which can be a nightmare to restore. They can also prevent the need for a custom abutment during the restorative phase, keeping patient costs down.

Those are, of course, just a few of the good reasons why guides such as ours cut time, money and errors in the operating theater. But there is another factor as well, which has everything to do with bypassing the conventional impression procedure that so many patients have come to dread:

Digital dentistry is in its beginning stages. The technology is new and exciting, with many uses in dentistry and-more specifically-implant dentistry. It allows for more precision when treating our patients. From guided surgery to abutment and crown fabrication, digital technology provides more exact treatment planning and decreased chairtimes. In the days of trying to maintain and attract new patients, the patient “WOW” factor can’t be matched.
