Practice Limited to Periodontics and Dental Implants



A 3D image of the jaw is taken with a CBCT which shows the contours of the bone and positions of important structures like the sinus or mandibular nerve (in the lower jaw).

2: Intraoral Scan

An intraoral scan is taken to record the shapes and surfaces of the teeth and gums which are then combined with the CBCT image of the bone.

3: Plan the Surgery on the Computer

3D software is used to plan the surgery as accurately as possible. This is more or less "practicing" the surgery on the computer before peforming it in your mouth.

4: Guide Surgery with X-Nav

Using the X-Nav computer guided system, we are able to have the computer guide our surgery and direct the drill to place the implant in the same position as planned in the software.
