What is CEREC guided implant surgery?
Firstly, what are implants? Essentially, they are titanium screws that are placed within the jawbone to support a number of dental prostheses such as crowns, bridges and dentures.
Guided implant surgery is the use of a computer and CBCT 3D X-ray machine to create a surgical guide which is made from the impressions of the desired implant region, as shown in the picture on the left. Its function is to provide a way for dentists to screw in an implant in a precise fashion. Then, using the surgical guide, the implant is screwed in, allowing for the dental prostheses to be placed on top.
Keeping with our commitment of exceedingly high patient care, we use the CEREC MCXL unit and CEREC Omnicam for the extremely smooth and accurate designing/milling of not just surgical guides, but ceramic blocks, crowns, onlays, inlays, veneers and bridges. The milling unit boasts precision of 25 microns, which is approximately three times less than the average width of a human hair. Our technology and dedication makes your treatment fast and simple.
