Guided Implant Surgery

Guided Surgery for accuracy and safety !

guided_surgeryDental Implant surgery needs to be performed very carefully and expertly by a very competent implant surgeon. Implant Surgeons within Antwerp Implant Dentistry have received implant training to Master’s level or are Specialists in Periodontics.

In the jaws are vital structures which can be damaged when implants are installed by novice dentists. In the upper jaw, it is possible to enter the upper jaw sinus and this will cause infection, and possible sinus complications. In the lower jaw, there is a large nerve that runs through the jaw. Inexpert implant surgery can result in damage to this nerve which could result in loss of sensation to the lower jaw, or ongoing pain.

Dental Implant surgeons assess the volume of jaw bone, and carry out necessary X rays and scans before implant surgery is performed. Where necessary, a “guided surgery” approach is recommended. With this approach, a scan  is performed, and virtual surgery is completed using a software technique called Simplant. This software maps the vital structures, and is a surgical navigation tool for implant placement. This maximises the safety of surgery.

You can be assured that at Antwerp Implant Dentistry, we use the most up to date imaging techniques and software to ensure that your dental implants are inserted safely with minimal chance of complications.
