Dental Surgical Guides

Computer-aided implant planning and guided surgery provide high accuracy to dental implant placement and facilitate more predictable prosthetic outcomes than non-guided implant surgery. However, only a limited number of clinicians use guided surgery due to the high cost of current commercially available surgical guide fabrication systems

Proper use of surgical guides can improve clinical outcomes in dental implant surgeries by facilitating detailed presurgical planning and precise placement of implant bodies. Definitive prosthetic design can be used during presurgical planning to determine the appropriate location for the osseointegrated implant, leveraging cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) technology to evaluate osseous topography and identify vital structures.  (reference: Kola MZ, Shah AH, Khalil HS, Rahah AM, Harby NMH, Sabra SA, Raghav D: Surgical templates for dental implant positioning; current knowledge and clinical perspectives. Niger J Surg 21(1):1 – 5, 2015)  Guide use can help relieve clinicians of several perioperative decisions and reduce intraoperative time.  (reference: Sarment, DP, Sukovic, P, Clinthorne, N.
