Dentistry is an ever-evolving world that is constantly generating more effective and efficient methods of treatment. One such innovation is the implementation of surgical guides for dental implant placement. Dr. Mabry utilizes this technology to improve the accuracy of implant positioning, combining CBCT scans with intra-oral images taken in office, to create a digital treatment plan based on both existing bone structure as well as aesthetics. Using this combination of software and radiographs, a unique guide is designed and printed in office using our Formlabs 3-D printer. This guide provides our surgical team with a precise starting spot to ensure optimal implant placement; the site is determined in the planning software using guidelines such as the patient’s anatomy and restorative considerations. If you are considering a dental implant, call our office today and we will be happy to schedule you for a comprehensive evaluation and begin your journey to a healthier, more beautiful you!
