Dynamic Navigation for Dental Implantation
Using the CBCT image as a map, Navident guides surgeons just like a GPS guides drivers. The dental surgeon plans where implants should be placed in the image. Navident, dynamically tracking the drill and the patient’s jaw, provides guidance and visual feedback to ensure the implants are placed according to plan.
The computer age has been here for some time and surgical navigation or computer aided surgery has been here for most of it. Since the 1980’s Neurosurgeons have been using surgical navigation devices designed by the engineers from ClaroNav. Now accepted as the standard of care in Neurosurgery, Spinal surgery and Orthopedic surgery, Dental surgery is about to experience a navigation boom.
Digital dentistry is an ever evolving process; digital patient records, digital communication, digital x-rays, and most recently digital CBCT scans are becoming a part of everyday dental life. The incorporation of the CBCT into the workflow of the dentist provides the perfect opportunity to turn precise diagnostic information into surgical precision.
This extension of the CBCT’s utility is not accomplished by providing a rigid paint by numbers template that is impossible to deviate from, but by providing more information to the surgeon and allowing them to apply their considerable skills within the CBCT environment.
