Your fear of dental treatments ends here. With 3D Guided Implant Surgery, you’re in for a safe procedure with promising results that will last a lifetime. 3D guided implant surgery is of absolute precision and makes safe implant placement feasible even in difficult anatomical situations.
Also called Computer Guided Surgery, the placement of every dental implant is guided by a special 3D imaging software that shows each patient’s dental structure. This allows the treatment planning to be easier and minimizes the risk of error during the actual implant procedure.
At Micris Dental Clinic, we provide you the best in 3D Guided Implant Surgery that’s planned, precise, and pain-free. Our professional implantologists are among the best in Dubai, who put your safety as our top priority with utmost care and precision in executing every surgery.
3D Guided Implant Surgery begins with initial planning and assessment of the anatomy of each patient’s case through a computertomogramm or CT. During your initial consultation at Micris Dental Clinic, the 3D software will be used to plan the position and size of each dental implant.
This program also helps in determining the most suitable jaw area where the implants should be placed. Once the data about the position and size are gathered, this information is transferred to a 3D surgical guide (a 3D printed plastic device). This surgical guide will help the implantologist to insert each implant in a precise manner during the actual surgery.
A surgical guide is a 3D-designed plastic plate that perfectly fits on a patient’s jawbone to guide the angle and depth of each dental implant during the placement. It is created once the information from the CT scan is imported to a CAD software to plan the treatment and design the plastic surgical guide. The CAD file is finally sent for 3D printing.
The whole planning will depend on the needed dental procedures for each patient. Aside from a CT scan, some cases would require impressions of the patient’s teeth for more precise planning. From the initial scan to the transferring of this information, to receiving the final 3D surgical guide it approximately takes no longer than 2 weeks.
Anyone who wants a fast and efficient dental implant procedure can visit our Dubai clinic and undergo 3D computerized implant surgery. The only limitation is that implants are not recommended to kids or young teens as their jaws are still growing and can shift the teeth out of position.
Since the procedure is precise and will be done under anesthetics or sedatives, you are assured that the 3D Guided Implant Surgery in our clinic is absolutely pain-free. You may experience some post-operative discomfort for a few days, which is normal. This can be addressed using prescribed medications or over-the-counter painkillers.
Our state-of-the-art dental clinic uses the CBCT which stands for Cone Beam Computed Tomography. This is a type of x-ray machine that provides more detailed and realistic imagery compared to traditional x-rays. Dental structures, soft tissues, nerve paths, and bones in the craniofacial region can be clearly examined through this CT scanner. This 3D imaging scan is safe for patients with just the right amount of radiation compared to other machines.
You will be seated in front of the CBCT device which will rotate around your head to give a full 3D scan of different parts of your oral and maxillofacial region. The scan is totally painless and will take just a few minutes. The results will be released immediately after the scan.
There are no special preparations needed before the scan. When you visit our clinic for an initial consultation, our specialist prosthodontist or implantologist will do the initial checkup and then conduct the scan necessary for your 3D Guided Implant Surgery.
The 3D Guided Implant Surgery procedure usually takes around 2-4 hours depending on the dental implant procedure chosen and the severity of your dental case. It is important to consult with your implantologist on the actual duration of the procedure so you can set the right expectations and prepare for it.
