Image-guided dental implant surgery utilizes tracking devices and cameras to safely and efficiently guide the placement of your implant. It works like a GPS system for surgical tools. The 3-D image of your jaw are the map that this particular GPS system uses. Each movement of the dental tools and implant materials is tracked and guided by a computer system. This is the same technology used in other highly delicate medical procedures.
This method ensures that your implant will be placed in the precise spot Dr. Bianchin determines it should go, assuring implant success. This computer-guided process is highly accurate and helps guard against improper placement that might lead to complications or long recovery times.
