We are unique in our provision of such technology and all-encompassing care for your patient. With our own CT Scanning equipment, we offer patients Guided Surgery – allowing for precise treatment planning, reduced chances of implant or surgery complications and promoting faster healing times for patients.
With dental implants growing in popularity and frequency, we are also trained to provide computer guided implant surgery using NavidentTM and SimplantTM software. In simple terms, such software acts as a navigation system for an implant dentist during the surgical process. It reduces unpredictability around implant placement within the jaw bone and helps to create accurate, safe plans prior to a freehand procedure.
Likened to a GPS system for implant placement, this system provides real-time guidance for dentists. Initially a three-dimensional CBCT image is taken of the jaw bone and the information is sent to the NavidentTM or SimplantTM software which then plans the precise implant site and guides our dental surgeon.
During the procedure, the drill bit is imposed onto the CBCT image, so the dentist knows exactly where to go and the next steps to take.
The computerised plan can be optimised to best meet the patient’s implant needs, and our oral surgeon will have a clear and accurate view of the jaw bone and the surrounding soft and hard tissue. This detailed visual gives our implant surgeons a huge advantage in performing successful, uncomplicated procedures, while the patient enjoys a more relaxed and predictable treatment process.
The Banning Dental Group is one of the only providers of Guided Surgery in the UK and London. With our own CT scanning equipment, we reduce waiting times for patients by offering this unique in-house service.
We have achieved a great rate of success with our advanced implant procedures over and above freehand techniques.
Guided surgery is the most advanced form of dental implant provision using three dimensional scans, biomaterials and allowing the immediate fixture of beautiful dental crowns onto the implants.
