For more complicated dental implant procedures, we are proud to offer the latest technology in guided implant surgery with 3D implant planning software. Using a CT scan of your mouth, virtual implants can be placed with pinpoint accuracy, allowing important vital structures such as nerves and sinuses to be visualized and avoided. Once the implants are planned, custom surgical guides are manufactured to the exact contours of your mouth and the implant positions desired. These guides ensure that the implants are surgically placed exactly where they were planned. Learn more >>
