Guided Implantation with 3D Surgical Template

The mere sound of surgery is loathed by most people and to be honest we are happy to just leave it out of our lives completely.

But would implantation be possible without a cut? The answer is yes, it is indeed possible.

Odontology is in the fortunate position among branches of medicine where the latest innovations in science are frequently applied for the first time.

As the 3D representation of the human body has become, through 3D printing, a reality, the high precision planning and robotic placement of implants without incision became possible.

This has several undeniable advantages:

  • The duration of an operation is halved
  • Without incision there is no swelling around the operated area
  • The immediate use of artificial dental roots is made possible
  • There are no sutures
  • Causing damage to anatomical structures such as the nerve channels and the sinuses - which are to blame for most complications- can be avoided
  • The implants are placed on the vastest possible amount of bone surface and are therefore in the best position to carry the teeth

To facilitate fast and risk-free medical work, a template is prepared using a 3D printer, marking the CT planned position of the implants to assist the surgeon.

This is especially useful when the bone structure is insufficient or the implants need to be burdened shortly after the surgery.

There are services available for specific implantation systems and services compatible with multiple implantation systems as well. (For further information please visit SMART GUIDE.)

3D CAD/CAM Unique Bone Block

Owing to the latest developments in dental technology, in the case of larger bone deficits, replacement is possible without removing own bone tissue (bone transplant). With a preliminary three- dimensional CT scan of the mandible, we can design the optimal bone shape virtually, using computer technology. Sterilised, antigen-free human bone is carved into the desired shape using CAD/CAM technology. The individual bone block is fixed to the proper area of the jawbone with screws. After an appropriate recovery time and the removal of the fixation screws it is possible to place in an implant of the correct size.

Ultrasonic Piezosurgery

The foundation of rapid and complete healing is a procedure causing the smallest amount of trauma, in other words: minimal-invasive surgery. The piezoelectric surgical instrument is a revolutionary innovation using ultrasonic energy to create space for the artificial dental root in the bone without drilling. Its immense advantage is that it compresses the bone without damaging it. It is extremely gentle on bone tissue allowing for sophisticated, delicate surgical preparation unlike any other. It is especially recommended, if:

  • low bone density puts the implant’s stability at risk, or
  • the narrow alveolar crest is not able to accommodate the implant.

The piezoelectric apparatus can be used in all kinds of bone related procedures such as sinus lifting or certain periodontal surgeries.
