X-Guide® Dynamic 3D NavigatioN
X-Guide affords your implant surgeon the most accuracy during your procedure. For you this means minimally invasive surgery thanks to smaller incisions, and therefore less pain, faster recovery, and ideal functional and aesthetic results. The X-Guide system is designed to elevate the surgeon’s control and precision over the entire implant process, including virtual planning and placement. This results in the ability to deliver patients a more desirable functional and aesthetic outcome.
The X-Guide system is like GPS for the surgeon’s drill. It utilizes the 3D treatment plan to provide turn-by-turn guidance during surgery, giving the doctor the ability to visualize precise movements of the drill during for more exact implant placement. This technology allows us to offer our patients minimally invasive treatment options. This means fewer incisions and less pain, as well as shorter healing time for patients.
How it Works
The surgeon will pre-plan the ideal implant location based on your unique anatomy using advanced software. During your surgery, the doctor will utilize a small, lightweight X-Clip in your mouth that matches to this digital plan with a specialized radiation-free camera system. During your procedure, the doctor has a 3D view of your anatomy including jawbone, soft tissue, surrounding teeth, as well as the digital treatment plan to follow. The X-Guide navigation technology provides the surgeon with turn-by-turn guidance along the surgical path, like a road map on your GPS. This is similar to the way medical neurosurgery has been done for many years.
Developed in close collaboration with leading Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, the X-Guide system promises to deliver what today’s implant clinicians want.
Dr. Robert W. Emery, Diplomate of the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons states, “the X-Guide system fills the final gap of digital dentistry. Dynamic 3D navigation allows the dentist to use all the 3D digital information at their fingertips in real-time to immediately use their Cone Beam 3D scan to plan and place implants.”
