Precise Implant Placement with 3D Imaging and Custom Surgical Guides
Dr. Chad Colson, a fellow in the International Congress
of Oral Implantologists, has successfully placed and
restored over 300 dental implants since 2008.
By utilizing our 3D imaging device and treatment planning
software, Dr. Colson plans and performs the
implant surgical procedure in virtual reality based upon
the ideal placement of the eventual restoration (i.e.
crown or bridge). From this virtual model, he fabricates
a custom surgical guide that directs the implant
placement in the mouth to the precise location in which
it was virtually planned.
The guided-surgical technique results in a minimally invasive
surgery, a faster recovery time, and a better
final restoration for the implant. This precision cannot
be replicated by traditional surgical techniques.
Implants will integrate or “bond” to bone regardless of
their orientation or position; an improper orientation/
position of a dental implant can be a restorative
nightmare for the dentist. Dr. Colson eliminates this
problem through the guided-surgical technique and
produces unequivocal results.
