Previously, dentists depended on their own skill to place dental implants, but computer-guided dental implants enable accurate placement. Due to the proximity of bone, nerves, and other systems in the jaw, it is crucial that the implant is put in the correct area.
If you imagine keyhole surgery, then the DIO digital navigation implant system does exactly that, but for your teeth!
With traditional implants, the current practice is as follows:
Alternatively, with the DIO navi system, small holes are drilled through the gum and into the bone. using computerised surgical guides. These take into account the safest positioning for both implant depth and trajectory. Your DIO implants are then inserted exactly into the holes, meaning:
As a result, DIO navi implants are suitable for many patients with diabetes or high blood pressure or indeed those people with systemic (organ or tissue) disease.
What’s more, DIO implant surgery takes on average 15-20 minutes for a single tooth implant and, depending on patient condition, they could also benefit from immediate abutment/crown placement – otherwise known as immediate loading.
We combine CBCT Xrays and Intraoral scanning data to create 3D simulations and allows us to make a surgical implant guide, which allows us to place implants more precisely and safely than ever before.
Needle instrument cools from the bottom of the socket.
Sharp blades allow drilling under 100 rpm, preventing bone heating.
Short Guide Drill allows convenient surgery in cases of limited mouth opening.
Instead of traditional impressions, a 3D scan of your teeth and jaw is done with a state of the art modern Trios scanner.
The 3D computer simulation allows us to visualise where the future teeth are going to be and what they look like.
A treatment plan is made through a professional consultation and diagnosis. We then acquire a 3D CBCT X-ray and 3D oral digital scan.
DIOnavi 3D artificial intelligence and computer aided design will allow us to visualise the implant surgery beforehand.
The implants can be placed now using DIOnavi surgical guided system.
Depending on circumstances we can potentially load the dental implants with a temporary crown straight away meaning you don’t have to wait for a tooth!
After 3-4months we will take another 3D digital oral scan to capture the shape of the gums and position of the implant.
We then insert the final ceramic crown that is designed to fit your bite and teeth.
