X-Guide: 3-D Navigation for Dental Implants
Dental implants offer an incredible number of benefits, including their durability and the fact that they can last a lifetime. These restorative appliances also help to protect your general overall oral health, giving you more self-assurance confidence than you may have had in years.
As this type of dental treatment continues to grow in popularity, the specialists here at Dr. Xixi Wu are able to ensure a greater degree of success by finding the best and most efficient methods of placing each dental implant with better accuracy and precision. It can also help patients that were perhaps may not have been candidates for this type of procedure previously due to various oral conditions which might have made the process too difficult to perform.
The X-Guide navigation system has technology that has planning software that assists in all factors in determining and finding the best locations for a dental implant. It allows for a visualization of where and how to implant the teeth through a virtual model designed for better aesthetic planning. It can also create and visually present an entire restorative process.
The system also displays live images and video of the entire mouth, as well as the dental practitioners’ tools, helping to guide them to the exact location necessary for proper preparation and implantation. It shows our dentists the precise details regarding angling and positioning and make the process much less prone to miscalculations. The details of the images coupled with navigational and planning software allows us to have the ability to accurately establish a detailed working plan for each step of the implantation procedure.
Implant placement results have been proven to be much better when X-Guide navigation systems are implemented in the process. It can also help with the recovery period as well. Whenever you go through any dental produce smoothly and with minimal or no complications, it can greatly reduce recovery time in many cases. It is important to note about this equipment, however, that it is technical and requires specialized training. That is one of the many reasons our professionals are best suited to operate it.
