A surgical guide is a medical appliance that is 3D printed based on the DICOM data which is patient specific. It’s used for the accurate placement of the implant in the bone structure.
Doctors utilize the surgical guides to plan an implant virtually and then accurately place an implant in the most safe, predictable, and efficient manner. In addition to increased accuracy, it’ll also help patients and doctors save chair time.
It has two types, full-arch surgical guides, and quadrant surgical guides.
Full-arch 3D print surgical guides are ideal for multi-site, single/dual-arch, teeth, bone and mucosa supported guide creation for the clinical placement of dental implants. Another type is ideal for single-site, single-arch, teeth-supported guide creation.
