Why 3D Planning in Dental Implants?

The Maxillofacial Institute is at the forefront of the three-dimensional revolution in medicine. All dental implant surgeries carried out are first planned in 3D, using the latest technological advances. This allows the specialists to anticipate, with exact precision, exactly where the dental implants need to be placed, thus avoiding any unforeseen circumstances in the operating theatre and ensuring optimum results.

Since 2010, the Maxillofacial Institute has been using an Intraoral Scanner which allows a 3D impression to be taken of the teeth and dental implants before carrying out most kinds of restorative work with dental prostheses. They also use a low-radiation CBCT (Cone-Beam Computed Tomography) which allows them to obtain a three-dimensional image of the anatomy of the patient’s entire skull or specific parts of it.

All of this provides an optimum clinical result and greater comfort for the patient. These studies are combined with the most sophisticated software programmes, which help the specialists decide the optimum position for the dental implants based on the quality and quantity of bone in each area of the mandible or maxilla.

Thus, 3D planning in Implantology allows:

  • An accurate diagnosis.
  • Virtual surgical planning of the treatment.
  • Unforeseen circumstances in the operating theatre can be avoided.
  • Reduced surgery time.
  • A more comfortable, less painful postoperative period.
  • Optimum results.
