Guided Surgery

Computer guided implant surgery represents a giant step forward in the replacement of dental implants, pathology and orthognatic surgery (corrective jaw surgery). Using Computerized Tomography (CT) Scan techniques and 3-D imaging, TERSA Oral and Facial Surgery can now visualize the patient’s anatomy, and get an advanced, detailed look at the interior sections of the jaw bone, surrounding tissue and the nerves, avoiding complications.

Dr. Guerra can view three dimensions in the computer and plan the the best position for the dental implants. This technology eliminates the guesswork involved determining what parts of the jawbone offer the best sites for dental implant placement.

It also allows the oral and maxillofacial surgeon and the restorative dentist, to create the permanent restoration prior to surgery and place the restoration the day of the surgery. Computer guided implant surgery provides greater patient satisfaction and simplifies the dental implant treatment process.

This revolutionary system offers a more accurate and safer positioning of dental implants. The actual implant placement and final restoration is completed in hours, not months. The benefits of computer guided surgery include precision, accuracy and success.
