Guided implant surgery saves bone – leading to better outcomes

Dr Massoomi JOMS paper 9-1-2015

In the most recent edition of the JAOMS, a group of researchers look at the difference between the amount of bone that is removed during implant placement, in guided cases versus non-guided (traditional) cases.  Findings:  The use of fully guided implant surgery decreases the volume of bone that is removed during the drilling process, which leads to better primary stability of the implant…leading to a higehr chance of implants osseointegrating.

This is the reason why we encourage CBCT guided surgery for implant placement.  Better outcomes for the patient.
