15-minute Digital Implant Surgery – Advanced Digital Guided Implant System

14 July 2021

Dental implant therapy has come a long way over the past two decades. What was once an extremely specialised and detailed process is now one that can be performed in a matter of minutes, with little to no recovery time necessary!

Digital Navigation and Placement

At Smile Concepts, we incorporate virtual 3D scanning software to plan the placement of your implant before the date of the treatment. With this digital information, we can adjust the implant installation area, angle, and consider the impact it has on immediately adjacent tissues.

Performing digital implant installation allows for a precise placement during every treatment. In turn, the overall procedure time can be reduced to about 15 minutes.

Advantages of Digital Implant Treatment

With 3D digital implant navigation, you can benefit from:

  • Improved comfort
  • Minimally invasive placement
  • Shorter recovery time
  • Reduced bleeding and swelling
  • Lower risk of infection

Traditional dental implant therapy used to involve making an incision into the gums, placing the implant, and suturing the tissues back into place. This conventional type of surgery resulted in swelling and bleeding near the installation site, which increased post-operative discomfort.

However, digital implant placement virtually eliminates most tissue irritation. Instead of making an incision, the digitally guided implant is set into a small opening created in your gum tissues exactly at the installation site. This placement method reduces or eliminates the need for sutures (stitches). Since there is next to no gum irritation or swelling, recovery is simple and comfortable.

How it Works

At the time of your dental implant consultation, we take a 3D scan of your oral anatomy and input it into our treatment planning software. Instead of using two-dimensional X-rays, we’re able to interpret your oral anatomy from every angle.

If you choose to get dental implants, Dr Shah uses the software to virtually place the implant directly into the digital replica of your bone. From there, a surgical guide is created to position the real dental implants in the same angle and location as the digital mock-up. At the time of your appointment, the guide is used to install each implant into a specific point without additional incisions.

Digital implant therapy significantly reduces the treatment length for most of our dental implant patients. It also allows us to provide care to non-conventional patients who might not otherwise qualify for implants. A process that might have taken closer to an hour can now be completed in just 15 minutes, with the recovery time reduced just as much.

Are Dental Implants Right for You?

With 3D virtual implant therapy, more people can explore the option of implants than ever before. Even if you’ve been told in the past that dental implants aren’t right for you, digital technology may mean different.
