WHAT IS DYNAMIC SURGICAL GUIDANCE?

Dynamic Surgical Guidance is free-hand guided surgery with real-time motion tracking of the clinician’s handpiece and patient position.  All based on one pre-operative CBCT scan that enhances the long-term success of implant-supported restorations.

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.

During surgery, two cameras locate unique markers on the handpiece and patient tracker attached to the stent

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

Why Use Dynamic Surgical Guidance?

Image
  • 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

  • Optimize the restorative outcome

  • Enhances long-term success of implant-supported restorations

WHY CHOOSE GUIDED SURGERY OVER CONVENTIONAL FREE-HAND SURGICAL TECHNIQUES?

  • Accurate and predictable

  • Optimizes restorative outcome

  • Enhanced, less invasive, flapless surgery

  • Shows location of vital anatomic structures and drill in real-time during surgery

ADVANTAGES OF DYNAMIC SURGICAL GUIDANCE VERSUS STATIC GUIDE TECHNIQUES?

Image
  • No outsourcing or laboratory preparation needed, reducing time and cost

  • Ability to change plan to adapt to clinical situation at time of surgery

  • Immediate extraction & placement of single and/or multiple implants in aesthetically challenging zones

  • Improved control of drilling trajectory

Small Patient Tracker

  • Smaller patient tracker means better comfort for the patient

  • Unique Inliant markers on the patient tracker enable cameras to accurately track patient’s position

  • No pre-surgical calibration required

Handpiece

  • Minimal impact to workflows as there is nothing attached to the handpiece; ergonomics and tactile feedback are unchanged

  • No pre-surgical calibration required

  • Familiar handpieces made by leading manufacturers

Intuitive Software

  • Intuitive interface

  • Supports any implant system

  • Shows real-time drill position during surgery

  • Minimal impact to workflows

  • Integrates conventional surgical protocol
