Computer Guided Dental Implant Surgery
X-Guide™ is the newest and most advanced system approved for the placement of dental implants.
LifeCare Dental is excited to offer X-Guide and X-NAV Technology to our dental implant patients. This advanced 3D technology expands the surgeon’s control over the implant process for the very best outcomes for patients.
How can X-Guide benefit patients?
According to the Journal of Oral Implantology, studies show that X-Guide navigated surgery is 10 times more accurate than freehand surgery. This translates to a more precise surgical experience for patients leading to better outcomes with less post-surgical discomfort and quicker healing times. Not only that, but X-Guide offers more efficient surgical planning so that patients can spend less time in the surgeon’s office while achieving a faster, less-invasive procedure — all while receiving optimal aesthetic results.
With X-Guide Navigated surgery, you can experience:
- Same-day guided surgery
- Less time in the dental office, and therefore less cost for you
- No messy and uncomfortable dental impressions (digital impressions are instant and precise)
- Predictable, less-invasive placement for reduced post-surgical complications and healing time
- The most functional and realistic dental implant outcome
X-Guide’s advanced technology allows your surgeon to perform incredibly accurate implant surgery that considers the delicate surrounding structures in your mouth with greater accuracy for a minimally invasive procedure. The oral and maxillofacial surgeons at our three state-of-the-art facilities have many years of experience in dental implant surgery and are highly skilled at utilising X-Guide technology for dental implant placement.
How does the X-Guide system work?
The X-Guide system is an industry-leading dental implant technology that integrates Cone Beam 3D imaging and X-Point™ navigation technology into the implant process. This allows your oral surgeon to control the exact placement of your implants during surgery. With live, 3D views of your anatomy and real-time navigation, your doctor can see all the structures in your mouth as he is performing your surgery, for the safest and most aesthetically pleasing implant placement possible.
Your oral surgeon will plan the best implant location based on your unique anatomy using advanced software. During your surgery, the surgeon will utilise a specialised radiation-free camera along with your digital surgical plan for a 3D view of your oral structures including jaw bone, soft tissue, and surrounding teeth. The X-Guide navigation system will then provide real-time guidance as your surgeon performs the surgery, like a GPS roadmap leading him along the road of your procedure.
