Billings Oral Surgery & Dental Implant Center in Sheridan, WY, uses X-Guide Dynamic 3D Navigation, also known as X-Guide and X-NAV Technology, for faster, more precise, and less-invasive dental implant placement. This dynamic 3D navigation technology expands your oral surgeon’s control over the entire implant process, from pre-planning to procedure, by utilizing the capabilities of cone beam 3D imaging and advanced software. The X-Guide system is designed to be like a GPS for placing implants, allowing your surgeon to use precise visual tracking to follow your surgical treatment plan during your procedure. The ideal position, angle, and depth for your dental implants is easily achieved, and the result is a faster, more precise, and less-invasive surgical procedure with reduced post-operative discomfort and faster healing times. With the enhanced efficiency of X-Guide, your oral surgeon can create a digital surgical treatment plan for you and perform your procedure on the very same day.
What are the benefits of X-Guide navigated surgery?
According to the Journal of Oral Implantology, studies demonstrate that X-Guide navigated surgery is 10 times more accurate than freehand surgery. The skilled surgeons of Billings Oral Surgery & Dental Implant Center agree that X-Guide digitally guided surgery offers their patients a better overall surgical experience with less post-surgical discomfort and quicker recovery times, as well as optimal implant functionality and aesthetics. Efficient and highly accurate surgical planning translates to less time in the surgeon’s office for the patient, and a more precise and therefore less-invasive procedure. Some of the benefits of X-Guide navigated surgery include
- Surgery the same day as your treatment plan
- Less time in the surgeon’s office, and therefore less cost for you
- No messy and uncomfortable dental impressions (digital impressions are instant and precise)
- Precise and ideal placement of your implants during surgery
- Less invasive procedure with less incisions
- Reduced post-surgical complications and healing time
- Optimal implant functionality and aesthetics
The type of extremely precise implant surgery your oral surgeon provides using X-Guide’s advanced technology offers a minimally invasive procedure that protects the delicate surrounding structures in your mouth with great accuracy. The oral and maxillofacial surgeons at our three locations have years of experience in dental implant surgery and are highly skilled in the use of the X-Guide system for your dental implant placement.
How does the X-Guide system work?
Integrating Cone Beam 3D imaging and X-Point™ navigation technology, the X-Guide system allows your doctor to see the structures in your mouth from all angles as he is performing your surgery. The ideal implant location will be planned and implemented based on a complete detailed 3D view of your oral structures using advanced software, and a specialized radiation-free camera will be used along with your digital surgical plan for your procedure. The X-Guide navigation system will then act like GPS for placing your implants, providing a real-time step-by-step roadmap for your surgeon as he performs your 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.
