This lecture will provide insights into the latest studies about quality, accuracy, patient disruption and cooperation. Surgical guided implant surgery has been around for some time now. With the new advent of fully integrated software, clinicians can now be involved and supervise the restoratively driven approach. The steps of planning, designing, and manufacturing of surgical guides is now completed with the placement of immediate temporary restorations.
With the integration of simple 3D printing technologies, the practitioner can print their products effectively and complete the whole process in-house or have the option to collaborate with a laboratory.
As implant dentistry has progressed, greater emphasis has been placed on natural-looking tooth replacement, minimally invasive techniques, and better cost efficiencies, with implant positioning being guided by the desired prosthetic outcome. Image-guided surgery is a technique that merges preoperative diagnostic imaging with
computer-based planning tools to facilitate surgical and restorative plans and procedures. This article discusses the intricacies of guided implant surgery, including 3-dimensional presurgical planning and the challenges of maintaining guide stability during surgical execution.
