Dental Implant Guide Option To Ensure A Perfect Fit!

Hello, I’m Dr. Grey Kantor here at Kantor Dental Group, Aesthetic Dentistry and Implantology. Today, I want to talk to you about a surgical guide for implants. This is a guide that allows us to place the implants in the perfect position. What I mean by that is if you place an implant by hand, there can be slight angulation variants, which may or may not be beneficial. With the guide, we can place it and plan it ahead of time using a 3D scan. We can place it perfectly in the right position that we want. Using a guide does three things. It allows us to place it in the perfect position, it reduces surgical time, which we all know is much more comfortable for you the patient, so it can go a lot faster, almost half the time, the surgical time, which in turn, the third thing, is it decreases post-op sensitivity, so, afterward, you’ll be feeling a lot less pain and discomfort.

The way the guide is made is we take an impression of your teeth and then we also do a 3D CAT scan. We merge those together to create this surgical guide. The surgical guide, if you see here, is somebody’s teeth and some missing teeth right in this area, it holds onto the teeth and allows us to place it right here in those keyholes, so we get an exact perfect location of the implants. The guides are an extra cost; however, they are very worth it in my opinion and I would suggest you ask for a guide, whether you go to us or any office for implants.

We love doing implants here at Kantor Dental Group. We’re located in San Rafael, California. Come see us for those perfectly placed implants, and we hope to see you soon.
