Dental implants with computer guided surgery

Computer guided surgery is a new technique that allows very precise planning of the surgery starting with the patient’s CT scan. Using an advanced software, the dentist virtually inserts the implant or implants of the appropriate length and size. In this way, he is able to plan the entire operation in advance reducing possible errors. With this technique, even complex cases with little bone can be handled safely and accurately. In addition, in the days following surgery, for the patient pain, swelling or bruising appear to be low compared to the traditional implant surgery technique.

The computer guided surgery advantages:

The advantages of this surgery are many for both the patient and the dentist. For the patient, guided surgery makes it possible to reduce the invasiveness of the treatment thus. This means less stress, less dental unit time, a reduction in the post-operative phase and, last but not least, a predictable aesthetic result. From the clinician’s point of view is possible to make surgery very precise and greatly reducing work stress and thus the possibility of errors.

In order to facilitate the insertion of implants, during the surgery the dentist uses a surgical guide specially made for the specific case. The surgical guide is a medical device represented by a transparent guide, composed by a resin structure and some metal bushings, which is designed each time by the dentist to guide him precisely during the dental implant placement procedure. Every guide is unique because it is made using advanced technologies such as computerised tomography (CT) or intraoral scanning, so it adapts perfectly to the patient’s anatomy.

The surgical guide features:

  • Accuracy: the precision with which the guide is made minimises the risk of error for clinician during surgery to ensure more precise and safer work for the patient.
  • Efficiency: overall, the process that starts with the design of the surgical case and ends with the insertion of the implants into the oral cavity is more efficient, faster and more accurate.
  • Customisation: each guide is customised, being made according to the patient’s unique mouth characteristics. This allows the clinician to best address the anatomical variations that arise in each specific case, guaranteeing an optimal result.

Today, many dental laboratories are equipped to support computer guided surgery and the preparation of the surgical guide. The in-house laboratory of the Tommaso Grandi Dental Clinic is among the most innovative in Italy in terms of tools (such as advanced software, 3D printers, titanium and zirconium milling machines, etc.) and number of surgeries performed.
