Navigated Implant Placement for Precise and Accurate Dental Implants at Sound Surgical Arts

Are you considering dental implants? If so, you may want to know about a new approach that ensures precision and accuracy. At Sound Surgical Arts, we’re proud to offer navigated implant placement, a state-of-the-art procedure that enhances the outcome of your dental implant surgery. It’s a game-changer in the field of dental implantology and we’re excited to bring it to our patients.

What is Navigated Implant Placement?

Navigated implant placement refers to a groundbreaking technique that utilizes computer software and advanced imaging technology to plan and execute the precise placement of dental implants. This innovative approach allows our skilled surgeons to create a virtual 3D blueprint of your mouth’s structure, meticulously identifying the ideal position, angle, and depth of the implant. With the help of this digital roadmap, the dentist can then accurately and confidently place the dental implant to ensure the best possible functional and aesthetic result.

Why Choose Navigated Implant Placement?

Navigated implant placement offers several advantages over traditional dental implant procedures, making it a popular choice among patients in need of a tooth replacement. Some of these benefits include:

1. Enhanced Precision: With this cutting-edge technology, our surgeons can visualize their surgical plan in 3D, allowing for unparalleled accuracy in implant placement. This increased precision leads to a higher success rate and better results in terms of fit and function.

2. Improved Patient Comfort: The navigated implant placement technique is less invasive than traditional methods, which translates to less discomfort during and after the procedure. The use of advanced imaging also reduces the need for multiple incisions, resulting in faster healing times.

3. Custom-Tailored Approach: Every patient’s oral anatomy is unique, and navigated implant placement allows for a personalized treatment approach. This means that implants are designed and positioned to fit each patient perfectly—and this customization ensures a natural and comfortable end result.

4. Increased Safety: By visualizing the patient’s specific anatomy in a 3D model, our surgeons can identify and avoid critical anatomical structures such as nerves and blood vessels, minimizing the risk for potential complications.

5. Cost-Effective: Although navigated implant placement technology may require a higher initial investment, the improved accuracy and diminished risks translate to reduced costs in the long run, making it a more sensible choice for patients.

The Navigated Implant Placement Process at Sound Surgical Arts:

At Sound Surgical Arts, we pride ourselves on delivering the highest quality care from the moment you step into our office. Our navigated implant placement process involves the following steps:

1. Consultation: During your first visit, our team will assess your oral health, discuss your goals and expectations, and present the best available tooth replacement options. If navigated implant placement is deemed suitable, we’ll proceed with further evaluations.

2. Diagnostic Imaging: Advanced imaging, such as Cone Beam CT scans or X-rays, will be taken to gain a detailed understanding of your oral anatomy. This information is essential for mapping out the precise placement of your implants.

3. Surgical Planning: Using the collected data, our skilled surgeons will create a virtual 3D model of your mouth, enabling them to plan the exact positioning of the implant based on your unique anatomy and requirements.

4. Implant Placement: During the procedure, our dental specialist will use the computer-guided technology to ensure the precise placement of the implant into the jawbone, ultimately achieving the optimal fit, function, and appearance.

5. Healing and Prosthetic: After the implant has been placed, ample healing time is allowed for the implant to fuse with the surrounding bone. Once fully healed, an abutment and a dental prosthetic, such as a crown, bridge, or denture, can be attached to the implant.
