Freehand vs guided implant surgery

Before CBCT scanners and guided surgery techniques became popular, freehanded implant surgery was the norm. Freehand surgery comes with flexibility, allowing doctors to visualize and relate diagnostic data to the actual clinical conditions. Freehand implant surgery can also be more cost effective in the short term, with no need for surgical guides and – in some cases – no need for CBCT scans. However guided implant surgery has risen in popularity among general dentists who are not implant experts and even implant experts who want to provide more predictable patient care. Using surgical guides, a doctor can place an implant in a very specific, pre-planned location to give the most ideal depth, angulation, and size of implant to fit the space. Guided implant surgery and planning with the final restoration in mind ensures less remakes and unexpected issues because of more predictable placement and improved clinical outcomes.

Surgical Guide Materials

What is an Implant Treatment Plan?

Implant treatment planning is the process by which a patient’s implant locations are planned using a combination  of STLs (intraoral scans), and CBCT scans Մ3D X՞Ray). This informs which implant types / sizes will be used during  surgery and where they will be placed into the mouth to ensure a successful final restoration.

What printers does Dandy use to print the surgical guides on?

Top-of-the-line Carbon Printers, which offer the most accurate guides.

Are CBCT scans required for Dental Implant Treatment Planning?

Yes. Using Dandy’s Treatment Planning software, CBCT scans (or CT scans) are combined with a patient’s intraoral scans (STL) to create an accurate picture for implant placement.

Yes! Dandy’s Implant Surgery program is designed to support every doctor’s unique needs.

What implant manufacturers/systems can Dandy treatment plan for?

Dandy is able to support nearly all implant manufacturers – like Nobel, Strauman, and bioHorizons, as well as lesser known manufacturers – for treatment planning. For less common implant manufacturers, a Dandy Treatment Planner will coordinate directly with the implant manufacturer to get the correct specs for the plan.
