CAD Planning for Dental Implant Surgery
Image Guided Surgery uses advanced imaging technologies such as CAD (Computer Aided Design) planning software and 3D Printers to visualise and pre-plan the surgery for each individual patient.
We use 3D imaging to enhance our ‘3D-thinking’ and 3D perception, and thus improve our ability to diagnose and treat our patients, and also makes it possible to plan the prosthetic result, which transforms the reconstructive process. Image guided surgery, using 3D imaging and 3D printing technologies have dramatically changed our management of patients requiring complex treatments, transforming implant surgery, root canal treatment, and crown and bridgework, and contributing to a more straightforward and predictable result for the patient.
