Surgical guides allow doctors to plan an implant virtually and then precisely place an implant in the safest, predictable, and well-organized manner. In addition to increased accuracy, patients will also save chair time.
Surgical guides are the modern advancement in dental implant technology. A surgical guide is made by taking impressions on an intraoral scan of the desired surgical implant site as well as a computer-guided 3D implant planning system. A surgical guide imitates the exact surfaces of the patient's intraoral setting and helps the surgeon to drill implants into the bone with optimal precision.
