Billings Oral Surgery & Dental Implant Center in Cody, WY, is now offering X-Guide Dynamic 3D Navigation, also known as X-Guide and X-NAV Technology, for an optimum dental implant process for our patients. X-Guide is a revolutionary dynamic 3D navigation technology that expands your oral surgeon’s control over the entire implant process by utilizing the capabilities of your oral surgeon’s cone beam 3D imaging system. X-Guide is like a GPS for placing implants because it allows your surgeon to follow your surgical treatment plan during your surgery with precise visual tracking for the exact position, angle, and depth of your dental implants. The result is a faster, more precise, and less-invasive surgical procedure for you. With X-Guide, our dental implant patients will also experience reduced post-operative discomfort and faster healing times, along with optimal implant functionality and aesthetics. What’s more, with the enhanced efficiency offered by this cutting-edge digital system, patients can receive their surgical treatment plan and have their implant procedure on the same day.
What are the benefits of X-Guide?
Studies in the Journal of Oral Implantology show that X-Guide navigated surgery is 10 times more accurate than freehand surgery. With this kind of digitally guided surgical experience, patients can enjoy less post-surgical discomfort and quicker recovery times, as well as better dental implant outcomes. Efficient and highly accurate surgical planning for the surgeon means that patients can spend less time in the surgeon’s office and have a more precise and therefore less-invasive procedure. Ideal aesthetic results are easier with the X-Guide system because the dental implant placement is optimal. With X-Guide Navigated surgery, you can experience
- Surgery the same day as your treatment plan
- Less time in the dental chair, and therefore less cost for you
- No messy and uncomfortable dental impressions (digital impressions are instant and precise)
- Exact placement of your implants during surgery
- Less-invasive procedure
- Reduced post-surgical complications and healing time
- The most functional and realistic dental implant outcome
When your oral surgeon performs extremely accurate implant surgery using X-Guide’s advanced technology, the delicate surrounding structures in your mouth are considered with greater accuracy — resulting in a minimally invasive procedure. The oral and maxillofacial surgeons at our three high-tech facilities have years of experience in dental implant surgery and are highly skilled at utilizing X-Guide technology for your dental implant placement.
How does the X-Guide system work?
The X-Guide system integrates Cone Beam 3D imaging and X-Point™ navigation technology so that your doctor can see all the structures in your mouth in real-time as he is performing your surgery. This results in the safest and most aesthetically pleasing implant placement possible. Your oral surgeon will plan the best implant location based on your unique physiology using advanced software. During your surgery, a specialized radiation-free camera will be used along with your digital surgical plan for a complete detailed 3D view of your oral structures. The X-Guide navigation system will then act like GPS for placing your implants, providing real-time step-by-step guidance as your surgeon performs the surgery.
Developed in close collaboration with leading oral and maxillofacial surgeons, the X-Guide system offers oral surgeons the type of dynamic 3D navigation that is used in medical neurosurgery. X-Guide is a great leap forward for digital dentistry that offers unmatched dental implant results!
