Dr. Manraj Bath is making digital dental history in Central Ohio. Bath is the first Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon in the country to purchase and offer XNAV Technologies’ new X-Guide dynamic 3-D navigation system*. The technology is designed to elevate the surgeon’s control and precision over the entire dental implant process. It’s like GPS for Oral Surgeons.
“The technology is truly revolutionary in that it provides real-time, interactive, turn-by-turn guidance for remarkably precise surgical accuracy. For patients, this means a more desirable, functional and aesthetic outcome and is a less invasive procedure which can mean little to no downtime,” states Bath.
According to the American Academy of Implant Dentistry, 3 million Americans have dental implants to replace missing teeth and that number is growing by 500,000 a year. The X-GuideTM system utilizes the surgeon’s plan to provide turn-by-turn guidance during live surgery, giving the ability to visualize precise movements of the hand-piece during osteotomy and implant delivery for more exact placement.
The X-Guide system makes it easy to be exact by providing robust treatment software plus new, patent-pending X-PointTM navigation technology – the first, single-view guidance of implant position, angle and depth. With the X-Guide system in Bath’s oral surgery practice, same-day guided surgery can be a reality for more patients. This is a big advantage, as more patients want their implant results to be functional and aesthetic, while minimizing complications and optimizing their time.
This the first and only FDA-approved device of its type and allows accuracy of 3 degrees or better. Besides offering this state-of the-art treatment for patients in Central Ohio and beyond, Bath will become a teaching site for other Oral Surgeons throughout the country.
