You’ve heard this before, but dental implants really are the longest-lasting and the most effective tooth replacement process available.
No other treatment provides the comprehensive list of benefits that implants do, which is why more and more patients opt for them. It’s important to make the treatment better and more accurate so that we can serve a greater number of patients, by both improving the degree of success and by making the procedure available for those whose oral conditions may have made it a difficult procedure to perform without greater precision.
That’s why Dr. Amanda M. Sheehan and the team here at Oakland Dental proudly integrates the X-Guide™ Dynamic 3D Navigation system with their dental implant placement practices. The X-Guide system is designed to elevate Dr. Sheehan’s control and accuracy throughout the entire dental implant process.
The X-Guide, working in tandem with our cone beam system, acts like a GPS for implant placement, yielding higher amounts of precision and efficiency than ever before.
How it Works
The X-Guide works seamlessly with our CBCT scanner. The software is designed to record your dental implant treatment plan, offering interactive guidance to Dr. Sheehan during surgery. She will be able to see a 3D rendering of your jaw, which will help her find the perfect position, angle, and placement of each dental implant post.
The comprehensive guidance reduces human error and ensures that your new dental implants fit flawlessly in your jaw.
Easy Navigation, Better Control
The technology makes it simple for Dr. Amanda M. Sheehan to look at the screen and concentrate on a dynamic focus point, which means that she can pinpoint the most optimal location for placing the implant with a precision that just wasn’t possible beforehand. This results in a better outcome for you, both medically and aesthetically.
The turn-by-turn guidance system allows Dr. Sheehan to improve the movement of her drill by delivering precise details about the positioning in the mouth. She can actually see where the drill is and where it needs to be, eliminating any guesswork and greatly reducing the time it takes to plan the treatment.
Advantages to the X-Guide Dynamic 3D Navigation System
We have elected to utilize the X-Guide system because of the undeniable benefits that it gives to our patients, including:
- Heightened precision of dental implant placement
- Patients spend less time in the dental chair
- Eliminates the need of messy dental impressions
- More predictable workflow
- Quicker turnaround time for dentists and labs
