The Advantages That You Can Get From Computer Guided Implant Surgery
A computer guided surgery is originally created for neurosurgery, it gives dentists a lot of advantages in order to help them achieve safe and predictable implant placements. Even if a computer guided surgery provides a lot of advantages, there are still a few dentists that would choose such technology.
A computer guided surgery will make use of the CT scan images of the cone beam of the patient to properly plan an implant treatment. You can plan a really accurate treatment procedure with the help of the computer guided surgery software because it will allow you to manipulate and see the images of the jawbone and the surrounding tissues of the patient. You will be able to see the vital structures, available bones, the root anatomy and the proximity of the adjacent teeth, and the thickness of the soft tissues with the images from the cone beam CT scan.
What are the advantages that you can enjoy from a computer guided implant surgery?
The accurate and precise implant placement would be the main benefits that you can get from using a computer guided implant surgery. The chance to see the vital anatomical structures will let you preserve them better during a computer guided surgery. If compared to the usual traditional surgical methods that can really provide a predictable outcome, they are still trickier to conduct since there are not anatomical references to be viewed. In order to avoid having some unexpected problems and issues during the surgery, it is important to have a precise planning of the treatment beforehand. One great benefit that the patient can get from a computer guided implant surgery is that the required time for the implant surgery will be greatly reduced. But even with all of the great benefits from a computer guided implant surgery, why are there still a few clinicians or dentists that are using the technology?
When would be the best time to make use of a computer guided implant surgery?
There are a lot of situations that a computer guided implant surgery can be really useful. You can choose to use a computer guided implant surgery every time a patient will be required to have three or more implants to be sequentially placed or every time an implant placement is vital for the success of the planned restoration. A computer guided implant surgery can also be very useful for patients who are having problems with the volume or the structure of their jawbone or those who would need a significant change in the bony anatomy. You can greatly reduce the issues that are associated with the proximity of the adjacent teeth or existing implants with the use of a computer guided implant surgery. A computer guided implant surgery can really help a lot of people including the dentists that will be performing the treatment.
