Guided Dental Implant Surgery
Who is a Candidate for Guided Dental Implants?
Dr. Pharr, Dr. Mendez and Dr. Snober are proud to offer guided implant surgery for patients that are good candidates for this procedure. We have been amazed at the reduction in pain and the increase in speed associated with implant placement when this protocol is used. A major difference in guided surgery compared to traditional implant surgery is that there is no major surgery to the surrounding gum tissue. This results in a dramatic reduction in patient discomfort.
What Is A Guided Dental Implant
Patients first receive a three dimensional X-ray and the implant surgery is “virtually planned.” A surgical guide is created from the planned implant surgery. This surgical guide looks like a dental mouth guard that has sleeves located in the implant positions. These sleeves are able to guide the implants into a precise location. We are proud to be on the cutting edge of dental implant surgery.
