What is a guided dental implant?
Customizing treatment and making decisions according to your unique case is our specialty. Guided implant technology allows our surgeons to see the structures of the jaw, teeth, and surrounding tissue, ensuring proper placement of the implant and minimizing the risk of unexpected complications.

From the initial cone beam computerized tomography (CBCT) scans that are analyzed by our oral surgeons for implant placement planning to the intra-operative procedure itself, guided implant surgery ensures precise and accurate implant placement. We use the information gathered by our cone beam scanner to:
- Evaluate bone and vital structures.
- Ensure there is adequate bone for implant placement.
- Verify the safety of important structure and nerves.
- Determine the best locations for implant placement.
- Reduced surgical time because a precise template eliminates guesswork.
