Computer-guided implant surgery (Nobel Guide)
This modern technique enables the surgeon to perform an implant surgery using a computer.
Firstly, a computed tomography scan of the bone structure of the patient’s mouth is performed. The results are passed to a computer, where the simulation of the surgery is created according to thepatient’s needs. The data of the surgical intervention plan are sent to a laboratory in Switzerland. There the guide with implants’ location and placement is created: a kind of a mould model, which will guide the surgeon in determining the exact position of the implant’s placement.
With this highly precise data, the surgeon will not spend more than an hour to perform the whole surgical intervention – with no incision,ensuring a rapid recovery and a placement of a fixed prosthesis in less than an hour. Using conventional methods the teeth implant would take up until six months to be completed. This guide is considered to be the guide of absolute accuracy and,moreover, it contains orifices that indicate the location of the maxilla (jawbones) where the implant(s) will be placed. Using the guide the surgeon carries out the implant placement procedure, and then places the pre-designed prosthesis.
Performing a computer-guided surgery is quite revolutionary in the field of implantology. Developed in Switzerland, the new technologyhas already been adopted by the most reputable surgeons worldwide.
