What are other ways my dentist may place my dental implant?
Free-hand is the traditional technique for dental implant surgery. In free-hand surgery, the surgeon uses a hand-held instrument to place your implant. The surgeon places the implant after looking closely at your bone, gums, and nearby teeth. Exact implant placement can sometimes be challenging with free-hand surgery. Printed or milled surgical guides fit to your teeth with guide holes for the implant. Guides do not allow the surgeon to make changes to the plan during surgery. This may result in delays to complete your surgery. Sometimes surgical guides may not work well due to poor fit. This may also result in delays to complete your surgery. Guides may not be a good option for hard-to-reach areas. However, guides may make it easier to place your implants in exactly the right place. Like Yomi-Enabled Surgery, physical guides may also allow for less invasive surgery. These are some reasons surgeons may recommend guides.
The information provided herein is not meant to substitute for the in-depth consultation you should have with your dentist. Only a licensed dentist can adequately diagnose and explain your underlying condition, Yomi-Enabled Surgery, medically acceptable alternative procedures, and the potential complications and risks of any procedure and/or operation. In every case your dentist must guide you on all aspects of your surgery, including pre- and post-operative care. Individual results will vary. Yomi is not indicated for patients with no teeth.
