Edina, MN Periodontist, Dr. Andres Sanchez, Improves Dental Implant Treatment with Guided Software

All-on-4 allows Dr. Sanchez to provide patients with a brand-new smile in just one day.

Dr. Andres Sanchez, Periodontist in Edina, MN, offers patients customized dental implant treatment with the use of advanced guided implant technology. This technology allows Dr. Sanchez to create customized guides to place implants in the most ideal location of the mouth. These guides can be used to replace individual teeth or entire arches of missing teeth, and they improve the success and permanence of the dental implant.

Guided implant software combines cone beam CT scanners with 3D technology to create physical guides that are customized for each patient's mouth. During a thorough exam, Dr. Sanchez will scan the mouth and jaw with a panoramic CBCT scanner to capture detailed 3D images of the mouth, bone and remaining teeth. These images are uploaded to the guided implant software to digitally plan the precise location of where implants should be placed within the jaw. The guide specifies the exact position, depth, and angle to place the implant in order to secure long-lasting results.

There are many benefits to using guided implant surgery, for both the periodontist and patient. When performing dental implant surgery with implant guides, both patients and Dr. Sanchez can expect:

  • Removal of guesswork
  • Quicker surgery time
  • Improved success rate for implants
  • Enhanced longevity with proper care
