CAD-CAM Guided Digital Precision Surgery
Digital Precision Surgery is a revolutionary concept providing patients with fully functioning teeth on dental implants in a single procedure that takes about an hour. As a surgically trained prosthodontist, with an experience of placing and restoring over 5,000 dental implants / crowns, Dr. Francis Oh at Comfort Dental Clinic provide Digitial Precision Surgery for qualified cases.
This CAD-CAM Guided Digital Precision Surgery not only increase safety, but also allows for a more precise implant placement. In addition, the fabrication of a final prosthesis is completed prior to the surgery. The computer-guided implant surgery is done in an arthroscopic fashion without requiring any flap reflection. This benefits the patient in that there is less postoperative discomfort, less swelling, and less bruising. Patients can often resume their normal activities the next day.
The process begins when a CAT scan is taken of the patient’s jaw bone + intra-oral scanning. This allows for the generation of a three-dimensional model of the jaw bone that can then be used with virtual reality software to plan the implant placement without the presence of the patient. The results are a more accurate implant placement and less chair time for the patient.
