Multiple Teeth – CT Guided Implant Placement
Multiple missing teeth can cause difficulty chewing and loss of function of the teeth/jaw/mouth. In order to correct this there are multiple options available. Some of these are the following:
- conventional dentures
- removable partial dentures
- implant supported bridges
- implant supported dentures
CT Guided Implant Placement is an advanced surgical technique used in more difficult cases to allow precision placement. This concept that provides patients with fully functioning teeth on dental implants in a single surgical procedure. This technology allows for collaboration among the restorative dentist and the surgeon. This merging of knowledge and experience achieves a more detailed pre-operative plan, not as well as more precise implant placement. In addition, the fabrication of a final prosthesis (bridge or denture) is completed prior to the surgery. The computer-guided implant surgery is done in a minimally invasive fashion. There is less postoperative discomfort, less swelling and less bruising. Patients can frequently resume their normal activities the next day.
The process starts when a CT scan is taken of the patient’s jaws. This CT scan allows for the generation of a three-dimensional model of the jawbone. This is used in virtual reality software to plan the implant placement without the presence of the patient. The results are a more accurate implant placement and less chair time for the patient at the surgery office.
