Surgically-Guided Implants make placing implants a “slam dunk”!
With digital radiography (x-rays) we can assess the health of a patient’s jaw bone, the health & location of adjacent teeth (as well as nerves), and all vital structures to be able to place an Implant in an IDEAL location and angle. Using a specialized computer program, we are able to take all of these factors into account and simulate the exact placement of the new implant. The “digital plan” is then sent in to a lab which generates a surgical guide within 1-2 weeks. We then notify our patient of it’s expected in-office delivery date, and schedule their final insert date accordingly.
At the delivery date appointment, Dr. Ang uses the surgical guide which is custom-made to fit the patient and indicates the exact location, depth, and angle that the Implant is to be placed. There is no “guess work” in the procedure – ensuring a pre-determined, optimal placement for the patient. Able to perform both dental Implants as well as the restoration, Dr. Ang’s patients benefit from a streamline process. In addition to this, convenient, efficient dental care allows patients to save both time and money as they need fewer appointments, and miss less work for multiple appointments at different locations.
