Guided surgery is the newest digital navigation implant surgery through 3D computer simulation surgery as it determines the optimal surgery plan with minimal incision of surgery and less pain. Glenhaven Dental Implant is proud to offer digital dental implants, an implant system that gives patients the option of a minimally invasive procedure, which sees a single implant placed in two hours. Let’s take a closer look at some of the benefits of digital dental implants.
This is the up-to-date digital implant surgery. Unlike conventional implants, the DIGITAL system implements a fully-digital flap-less technique which involves minimal surgery time, less discomfort, and no sutures.
Using patented digital technology, Digital implants allow us to find the safest and most effective placement for each dental implant. Thanks to this, your consultation time is reduced because we are able to find a pathway for placement that decreases your chance of nerve damage.
In order to understand why they are effective, you first need to understand how guided implants differ from conventional dental implants.
With conventional dental implants, we must first make an incision in your gum in order to expose the bone underneath. Then he or she will drill into the bone, screw the implant on top of it and then stitch the incision up again.
You would then wait for the appropriate amount of healing time for osseointegration to take place before your dentist opens the incision again in order to attach your abutment. You would need another period of healing to take place if you follow this process.
Each time the site is opened up again, your chances of infection increase.
By contrast, the Digital implant system makes use of dental technology to find the correct placement for your implant. Minimally invasive incision surgery is used to create keyholes in the correct position, in which implants are placed. This avoids the need for reopening the incision and is considered ‘flap-less’ surgery.
