ImplantPilot™ is a revolutionary new system developed to increase the precision of implant placement, whilst being less invasive and thus reducing discomfort for the patient.
Advantages of ImplantPilot™
- Keyhole surgery – Less invasive
- No Stitches
- Reduced Surgery Time
- Reduced post-op discomfort
- Increased precision
ImplantPilot™ takes advantage of the latest digital technology to be able to plan the implant placement virtually on a computer well in advance of the actual procedure.
The digital planning combines a three-dimensional CT scan with a scan of a plaster model and then relates the two by using a LEGO® brick as a marker on both scans. The planning software is used to then design a guide, which is 3D printed in titanium, which is then used to control the position of the drill, giving precise implant placement.
Conventional implant treatment requires the gums to be cut and folded back to be able to see the bone at the implant site. With ImplantPilot™, it is no longer necessary to cut the gums as the implants can be placed accurately without having to visualise the bone. By using this keyhole technique, there is much less tissue damage and so less post-operative discomfort. No sutures are required, and there is less risk of bleeding. The procedure can usually be completed in a fraction of the usual time implant placement takes.
ImplantPilot™ can be discussed in more detail at your consultation appointment, or alternatively, visit implantpilot.co.uk for more information.
