Guided dental implant surgery is a viable option for a broader range of patients who are missing one or more teeth. This surgery enables our Implant Dentist in Little Rock, Dr. Hill to place an implant in a more precise way.
Guided implant surgery is a process of planning implant surgery on a computer using the patient's CT image. This method helps our Little Rock Dentist in planning the surgery accurately on the computer. Computer-guided implant surgery is significantly quicker, resulting in patients getting his or her new tooth on a single visit.
A CT Scan of the patient's mouth is taken to create a virtual surgery, where a model of the patient’s mouth and the 3D scans are overlayed to enable our Implant Dentist in Little Rock to perform a stimulating procedure. With this information, a computer-generated surgical guide is created to assist the precise placement of the implants. Our Little Rock Dentist also uses 3D imaging technology and CAD digital design software to fabricate the models of the crown which are to be placed. Once the models are received our dentist digitally designs the restoration using the CAM software. After the placement of the crowns on the implants, final digital x-rays are taken to ensure proper placement of the implants and crowns.
The benefits of guided implants surgery are as follows:
