Dental Implant Placement Protocol
At the time of surgery, the surgical drilling guide is placed in the mouth and, therefore, accurately guide the implant placement. This, hence, assures that the implant is accurately placed as it was planned virtually on the computer. Most noteworthy, and since there is no guessing on position, angle or depth of the implant, a lot of times, no gum opening or sutures are needed. Implants are then placed as painless as possible . Beside that, there is less trauma and therefore less discomfort.
Implant Placement Accuracy & Safety
Certainly, this technique assures accurate implant placement in location, angle and depth. Hence, It is the the most accurate, safest and least traumatic way possible.
Most noteworthy, there are many vital structures that are present within the bone and under the gums that cannot be seen, and therefore, they can be damaged if inadvertently hit by an implant.
Certainly, some surgeons may use a computer to plan implant placement but they still place the implant without a precision drill guide or an inaccurate one. It was once said that “No matter how brilliant the plan, it is useless if not carried out correctly.”
