When performed by skilled and experienced oral surgeons, dental implant placement boasts an incredibly high success rate, making it the gold standard for replacing missing teeth. Our team uses advanced clinical technology to make the procedure even more accurate, effective, and safe. Premier Center for Oral, Dental Implants & Facial Surgery is proud to use X-Guide Dynamic 3D Navigation for each dental implant case we see in Massachusetts, helping us provide each patient with ideal outcomes and an optimal experience. We are passionate about using advanced technology to help our patients from Westford, Groton, Nashua, Chelmsford, Fitchburg, and Leominster.
What Is the X-Guide?
Historically, oral surgeons have relied on basic X-rays and CT scans to understand their patients’ oral anatomy and place dental implants in the appropriate positions. While these methods generally work well, there is room for some deviation. The X-Guide technology provides a much more sophisticated way for us to map out the patient’s mouth, teeth, and jaws, allowing us to plan and perform dental implant procedures with optimal accuracy and precision.
Combined with Cone Beam 3D imaging, the X-guide technology provides your surgeon with a live, 360-degree view of your jaw and teeth, providing turn-by-turn guidance during the surgical procedure and alerting us if our tools ever get too close to sensitive nerves. In other words, the X-Guide is an interactive imaging tool that not only lets us plan the most efficient surgeries, but also makes it possible for us to adjust and revise our approach in real time, as needed.
How Do Dental Implant Patients Benefit from the X-Guide?
X-Guide Dynamic 3D Navigation benefits patients in more ways than one. Traditional methods for dental implant placement typically require longer planning timelines and more frequent appointments, which ultimately translates into higher costs. X-Guide technology allows for much more precise planning on the front end, which means patients typically require far fewer scans and office visits. In fact, X-guide can sometimes enable accurate and effective same-day implant placement.
X-Guide technology also improves the accuracy of implant placement. Again, this is already a procedure with a reasonably high success rate, but studies show that using X-Guide is 11 times more accurate than placing implants by hand. This significantly reduces the patient’s risk of complications and the need for expensive and uncomfortable procedures to remove and replace implants.
Finally, the precision made possible through X-Guide technology means that patients generally have much shorter surgical times, experience less discomfort, and enjoy abbreviated recovery times. All of these factors make X-Guide standard-of-care for patients who come to us for dental implants or full mouth restoration.
