Guided Dental Implant Surgery in Champaign, IL
Guided dental implant surgery is an innovative procedure that we are proud to offer at W. Eric Martin DDS, PC. Our dentist in Champaign uses our advanced CEREC and 3D Cone Beam technology to perform this procedure. It requires a skilled and experienced practitioner like Dr. Martin to effectively perform this high precision surgery.
Dr. Martin recommends guided surgery for individuals who are looking to replace one or several teeth in their smile. This reconstructive surgery gives patients an opportunity to regain their confidence with durable, natural looking teeth.
Once you’ve chosen guided dental implant surgery, Dr. Martin will scan your oral cavity using our 3D cone beam technology to create an image of the surgical site using CEREC. Our advanced CEREC software allows Dr. Martin to visualize the surgical site and position your implant in the ideal position. This 3D image gives our Champaign dentist an advantage by allowing him to see where the nerves, bones, and other structures are located in your teeth and gums. Thanks to this technology, potential complications can be avoided, helping to ensure the best results for your restoration.
The process, in a nutshell, involves treatment planning with the help of computer software, preparation of the surgical site for implant placement, and implant placement. With guided surgery, incisions and stitches can often be avoided, making the process quicker and more efficient than the traditional “free hand” surgical technique. This will also reduce your recovery time.
With guided surgery, you can experience better results with less risk. The combination of CEREC, cone beam scanning, and our dentist’s skills aid Dr. Martin in treating our patients more efficiently, helping to ensure results you’ll be proud to show off. With guided surgery, our Champaign dentist is able to place dental implants in a safe and precise manner, providing exceptional benefits that can’t always be achieved through conventional implant placement.
