Improving dental implant precision with X-Guide® technologies
Dental implants are viewed as the “gold standard” in tooth replacement options due to their many functional, aesthetic and oral health benefits after tooth loss. At Living Wellness Dental Northland in Calgary, AB, we have invested in state-of-the-art technologies that enable us to provide precision care and reliable outcomes. One of the key instruments is the X-Guide® 3D navigation system for the placement of dental implants.
Dental implant placement
Dental implants include small cylinders/posts, an abutment and a crown made of either titanium or zirconia depending on the client’s desires and needs. Their design is to mimic a natural tooth and root system to provide unparalleled stability and function compared to other types of tooth replacement options that only replace the visible portion of the tooth. To place a dental implant, the dentist carefully identifies the optimal location in your jawbone before drilling a small hole in the bone into which an implant can be placed.
What is the X-Guide® system and how does it benefit patients?
The X-Guide® 3D navigation system is a revolutionary new technology from X-Nav Technologies that enhances precision and accuracy when surgically placing dental implants. The X-Guide® system delivers interactive, digitally-assisted guidance that improves the ability to place implants with astonishing precision at the right angle, position and depth during the implant procedure.
The X-Guide® system:
- Uses specialized computer software that serves as a sort of GPS for the dental drill.
- Enhances our ability to plan and visualize your implants for better end results and aesthetics
- Provides our dental team with a live, three dimensional view of the drill position and patient anatomy.
- Enables us to provide same-day guided surgery.
- Can be more cost-effective than traditional guides.
In short, using X-Guide® enables the delivery of excellent, long-lasting results that function and look like natural teeth.
