Digital Workflow and 3D Imaging for Implant Planning, Placement, And Restoration
We use the most recent digital innovations to digitally plan implant placement to achieve the most predictable and esthetic outcome.
One of the main advantages of the full digital workflow is the simplicity of accurately diagnosing and virtually planning the implant position using the digital intra-oral scan and cone beam computed tomography data. This in turn allows the fabrication of an accurate surgical implant guide that enables the placement of the implant fixtures in a simplified and predictable manner. The digital implant workflow begins with the intra-oral scanning of the pre-surgical area. Once the placement position of the virtual implant has been determined to ensure they are at the ideal angulation, location, and depth to support optimal prosthetic results, a surgical guide can be designed. Digital impressions with an intra-oral scanner can also be utilized in the restorative phase of the implant workflow.
Computer-guided implant surgery represents a giant step forward in the replacement of teeth with dental implants. Using Computerized Tomography (CT) Scan techniques and 3-D imaging, our specialists at IMPrESS Perio Implant Center can now visualize the placement of dental implants in three dimensions. This eliminates the guesswork involved in determining what parts of the jawbone offer the best sites for dental implant placement. It also allows the dentist to create permanent restoration prior to surgery and place the restoration on the day of the surgery. Computer-guided implant surgery provides greater patient satisfaction and simplifies the dental implant treatment process. The actual implant placement and final restoration are completed in hours, not months. Often referred to as Teeth-in-an-Hour™.
Computer-guided surgery is a virtual system that improves the reliability and accuracy of implant treatments and enables the execution of treatment planning based on 3D jaw modeling. The planning process involves three key steps: A CT scan produces a detailed image of the bone structure revealing the quantity and quality of the patient’s bone structure in 3D. This information is recorded in interactive software enabling the dental surgeon to evaluate the patient’s anatomy and simulate the implant positioning as well as bone augmentation. We can then order the computer-generated surgical guides according to the specific treatment plan of your case. The dental surgeon will use these surgical guides to proceed with the surgery with more precision, more predictability, and minimally invasive. Dr. Noroozi has been practicing guided surgery for hundreds of cases. At our implantology clinic, you will have access to state-of-the-art implant treatments. This procedure is less invasive and traumatizing for the patient. It is now possible to position implants with an ideal emergence profile.
This revolutionary system offers a more accurate and safer positioning of dental implants and provides the patient with permanent teeth on the same day. This technology enables your doctor to get an advanced, detailed look at the interior sections of the jaw bone, surrounding tissue, and the nerves. These CT scan machines are the same as those used to aid surgeons in joint replacement procedures.
