Billings Oral Surgery & Dental Implant Center in Billings, MT, is excited to offer X-Guide Dynamic 3D Navigation, also known as X-Guide and X-NAV Technology, to its dental implant patients. This advanced 3D technology expands the surgeon’s control over the implant process for the very best outcomes for patients. X-Guide has been called GPS for placing implants because it utilizes your surgeon’s surgical treatment plan to guide him during your surgery, offering precise visual tracking for the exact position, angle, and depth of your dental implants. For our patients, this results in smaller, more precise incisions, and an overall less invasive surgery with reduced post-operative discomfort, faster healing times, and optimal functional and aesthetic results. Furthermore, with this cutting-edge system, our patients are now able to receive their surgical plan and their digitally guided surgery on the same day.
How does X-Guide technology benefit patients?
According to the Journal of Oral Implantology, studies show that X-Guide navigated surgery is 10 times more accurate than freehand surgery. This translates to a more precise surgical experience for patients leading to better outcomes with less post-surgical discomfort and quicker healing times. Not only that, but X-Guide offers more efficient surgical planning so that patients can spend less time in the surgeon’s office while achieving a faster, less-invasive procedure — all while receiving optimal aesthetic results. With X-Guide Navigated surgery, you can experience
- Same-day guided surgery
- Less time in the dental office, and therefore less cost for you
- No messy and uncomfortable dental impressions (digital impressions are instant and precise)
- Predictable, less-invasive placement for reduced post-surgical complications and healing time
- The most functional and realistic dental implant outcome
X-Guide’s advanced technology allows your surgeon to perform incredibly accurate implant surgery that considers the delicate surrounding structures in your mouth with greater accuracy for a minimally invasive procedure. The oral and maxillofacial surgeons at our three state-of-the-art facilities have many years of experience in dental implant surgery and are highly skilled at utilizing X-Guide technology for dental implant placement.
How does the X-Guide system work?
The X-Guide system is an industry-leading dental implant technology that integrates Cone Beam 3D imaging and X-Point™ navigation technology into the implant process. This allows your oral surgeon to control the exact placement of your implants during surgery. With live, 3D views of your anatomy and real-time navigation, your doctor can see all the structures in your mouth as he is performing your surgery, for the safest and most aesthetically pleasing implant placement possible.
Your oral surgeon will plan the best implant location based on your unique anatomy using advanced software. During your surgery, the surgeon will utilize a specialized radiation-free camera along with your digital surgical plan for a 3D view of your oral structures including jaw bone, soft tissue, and surrounding teeth. The X-Guide navigation system will then provide real-time guidance as your surgeon performs the surgery, like a GPS roadmap leading him along the road of your procedure.
Developed in close collaboration with leading oral and maxillofacial surgeons, the X-Guide system delivers the dynamic 3D navigation used in medical neurosurgery into the hands of oral surgeons for unmatched dental implant results.
