Surgical guides are 3D printed guide based on the digital planning of the surgery, using specialised software and the CBCT of the patient
Surgical guides are the latest advancement in dental implant technology. A surgical guide is created by taking impressions or an intraoral scan of the desired surgical implant site as well as a computer-guided 3D implant planning system. A surgical guide replicates the exact surfaces of the patient’s intraoral setting and assists the surgeon to drill implants into the bone with optimal accuracy. Upon placement on the patient’s jaw, the surgical guide uses sleeves to help guide the surgical instruments and implant to the proper location.
