What’s so special about computer-guided dental implant surgery?
Dr. Djruric was one of the first dentists to utilize computer-guided surgical templates for dental implant surgery. He has been utilizing this technique for over 10 years, when his work was first documented and published in Spectrum Dialogue. The benefits of computer-guided dental implant surgery included increased reliability, shorter surgeries, and faster recover.
Here are actual pictures of a recent patient of ours who underwent computer-guided implant surgery:
Digital implant surgery with the Surgical Guide offers valuable benefits that make it an excellent alternative to traditional, freehanded implant surgery, including:
- No Cuts, Incisions or Sutures
Because the gum tissue isn’t opened, patients also won’t require any sutures afterwards.
- Reduced Pain, Bleeding & Swelling
The lack of incisions and gum flap opening will lead to far less discomfort and oral swelling. There may even be no bleeding at all to worry about!
- Quicker & More Reliable (10 Minute Surgery)
3D-guided implant surgery allows Dr. Djuric to plan ahead before any actual treatment takes place. Because of this approach, the length of your procedure decreases from around 60 minutes for one implant to 10-15 minutes. Additionally, it has been found that implant success is highly dependent on the precise three-dimensional placement of the implant. This requires that the knowledge of the final tooth position and its pattern of occlusion be predetermined.
- Quicker Recovery Time
There’s no need for patients to wait for their oral tissue to gradually heal over time and you’ll recover faster and feel like your old self again in record time.
If you’ve previously have been told that you aren’t a candidate for dental implants, guided surgery may make the procedure possible for you. Please call our office today to schedule a consultation and learn more.
