3D computer navigated implant surgery

3D Implantologie am Computer
The patient today, with one or more missing teeth, is faced with the question: "Do I take a bridge or do I afford the higher costs of mini implants." If only one tooth is missing, the two neighbouring teeth can be can be tapered by the dentist and the missing tooth replaced with a pontic made of metal, metal with ceramic veneer or even full zirconia ceramic.

Alternatively, the missing tooth can be replaced by a titanium implant (metal-coloured) or a tooth-coloured white ceramic implant, which serves as an artificial root. Advantage: The neighbouring teeth remain undamaged. If there is not enough bone strength for an implant, a so-called bone augmentation or sinus lift with your own or artificial bone can replace the missing bone substance, to make room for the implant. This dental implant will grow into the patient's own bone in three to six months and can then support a crown, bridge or removable denture.

The bone structure must also heal for three to six months before the implant is inserted. In many cases, implantation and bone augmentation can be performed at the same time.

Three-dimensional X-rays with a DVT ( digital volume tomography ) provide the oral surgeon, dentist and dental technician with excellent information about the bone, the bone density, the position of the nerves in the jawbone and the maxillary sinus. and the maxillary sinus. The technique allows the exact position of the implant is determined by a drilling template. The oral surgeon can navigate the implants into the predetermined positions.

With the help of appropriate 3D planning software, the case is planned in detail by the dental technician, oral surgeon and dentist. These DVT or CT images are the first step for the implementation. The length, inclination and position of the implant are predetermined and ideally adapted to the circumstances. The overall situation, such as neighbouring teeth and the distance to the nerves, is taken into account, as well as the position of the teeth in the opposite jaw. teeth in the opposite jaw. The dental technician can produce a drilling template that then transforms this implant position from the virtual world into the human jaw.

Computer-navigated implantation was first used 15 years ago. Nobel Biocare and Simplant were the pioneers here. The advantages of this computer-assisted jaw surgery and dental technology are: More safety and information for patients oral surgeon and dentist about this 3D planning in complicated jaw conditions and low bone strength.

Fewer bleedings and swellings via small and less time-consuming ( minimally invasive ) interventions. Initial restoration with dental prosthesis already directly after implantation, as temporary dentures, interim restorations or provisional bridges can be produced in advance.
