What Is Dynamic
Dynamic Surgical Navigation is free-hand guided surgery with real-time motion tracking of the clinician’s handpiece and patient position. The precise angulation and position of the drill is calculated and overlaid on the patient’s CBCT scan in real-time and displayed on the monitor.
How Does It Work?
A fiducial, recognized as an anchor point, is affixed to the patient and held in place with a stent during the initial CBCT scan, and again during surgery.
During surgery a patient tracker is attached to the stent. Cameras track markers located on both patient tracker and dental handpiece to determine the relative position of the drill and patient which is displayed on a monitor.
With nothing attached to the handpiece, the clinician’s ergonomics and tactile feedback remain unchanged. Inliant’s proprietary markers enable the cameras to accurately track the handpiece position.
2. Patient Tracker
The patient tracker is attached to the stent and worn by the patient during surgery. The proprietary markers on the patient tracker allow tracking of the patient’s position relative to the handpiece and drill for optimal surgical accuracy.
A stent is fabricated chairside using a fiducial and thermoplastic beads, and is worn by the patient during CBCT. Registration markers located in the fiducial are recognized by Inliant’s software as the anchor point between the CBCT scan and the patient’s anatomy.
Why Use Dynamic Surgical Navigation?
Same day planning and surgery
One pre-op scan reduces or eliminates the need for x-rays during the implant procedure
Ability to change plan, to adapt to clinical situation, during surgery
Immediate extraction & placement of single and/or multiple implants in aesthetically challenging zones
Improved control of drilling trajectory, enhancing predictability
Most beneficial in areas where there is questionable bone volume, limited vertical space, diverging roots or tight interdental spacing
Enhances the restorative outcome and the long-term success of implant-supported restorations
No outsourcing or laboratory preparation needed, reducing time and cost
