What Is CT Guided Implant Surgery?

Traditionally, dentists and specialists relied on X-rays for implant planning was, but the professional placing the implant was still essentially working blindly up until opening up the patient’s gums and jawbone. As a result, when this technique is used, patients can experience complications from this procedure.

However, the process is different for CT guided implant surgery. Prior to starting the implant surgery, Dr. Shah captures a 3D CT scan of the oral cavity, revealing where blood vessels, nerves, and ideal jawbone density are located. From this information, he can virtually perform the placement procedure before touching the patient. As a result, he can determine the perfect positioning and angle of the implants and avoid unnecessary complications.
