Treatment Guided by Advanced Technology

Why Surgical Technology Matters

Dental implants have been improving lives long before guided technology became the standard of care. While we do rely on our surgical expertise and skill during your treatment, we also know that surgical advances like guided implant surgery make the process more predictable and precise. At Green Lake Oral and Facial Surgery, we incorporate advanced technology to provide patients with the best possible outcome. We invite you to see how our technology stands out  from others.

Predictable treatment begins with careful planning. We do this digitally, using dental implant software, intraoral scanning and advanced CBCT imaging. These methods combined create a highly accurate three dimensional replication of your mouth. From there, we can precisely place a moch implant in the exact size and location, making the day of your procedure seamless and timely. For guided implant surgery, we use X-Guide Technology. The X-Guide is a dynamic 3D navigation system that delivers real time interactive guidance of drill position during surgery, giving us the ability to improve precision and accuracy of implant position, angle and depth. 

Our Technology-Backed Dental Implant Process

Predictable treatment begins with treatment planning. We do this digitally, using implant planning software, intraoral cameras, and advanced CBCT imaging to develop a highly accurate, three-dimensional replication of your mouth. Using our implant planning software, we digitally plan your treatment, including designating the precise location of your implants for optimal aesthetics and long-term function. Depending on your case, we may create physical surgical guides, fabricated using our in-office 3D printer. We may also use X-Guide navigation technology to further ensure precision and control of implant placement. During surgery, we’ll rely on a live, 3D view of our drill position and your bone’s anatomy so the dental implants are placed at the most accurate location, angle, and depth in your jawbone. Because this system is dynamic, we’re also able to make precise adjustments in real time, either before or during surgery, and remain in complete control the whole time. Many times, in cases where a full arch of teeth is replaced with dental implants, we will have a temporary dentition already made so you can leave our office the day of surgery with a new set of functioning teeth. In all cases, your implant(s) will be strategically placed so that your restoring dentist has the most ideal foundation from which to create your custom crown, bridge, or full-arch prosthesis.
