DYNAMIC NAVIGATION FOR DENTAL IMPLANTATION
Mapping Virtual to Reality
A breakthrough in computer-aided implantology, Navident offers dental surgeons an easy to use, accurate, highly portable and affordable way to plan the desired restoration and implant placement on a virtual patient, then execute the plan on the real patient’s jaw.
The virtual patient’s jaw is created from the CT and, optionally, digital impression data, in seconds. The plan, including crowns and implants, is prepared in a few minutes and can be modified any time. During surgery, Navident shows the advance of the drill tip or implant in the patient’s jaw relative to surrounding structures and the implantation plan.
Let Navident help you be better
Do a better job
Plan the restoration on screen, then optimize the implant positions considering both bone and crowns. Then let Navident guide you to accurately implement your plan in the patient’s jaw.
Reduce harm to patient
Perform flapless surgery, leading to reduced patient discomfort, reduced risk of infection, and faster recovery. Avoid unintentional iatrogenic damage to nearby anatomical structures.
Increase your efficiency
Eliminate plaster models, wax-ups and fabrication of guides. Reduce chair time by eliminating raising and suturing flaps.
Reduce treatment costs
Leverage accuracy to reduce the need for custom abutments, bone augmentation and re-work. Use retrievable screw-retained, rather than cement-retained, superstructures.
Demonstrate to patients your ability to leverage the latest technology to deliver better, safer, less invasive care.
Relax and enjoy
Reduce your mental stress. Sit up during surgery. Use exciting new technology. Increase your job satisfaction and extend your career.
Simplified TaP workflow
Plan restorative-driven implant placement on a laptop
The restoration and implant placement plan is created using the CT image data, optionally with added intraoral scans or any other surface data (STL files). The plan can be modified at any time, even during surgery. Navident is compatible with any implant size and type available on the market.
Register the CBCT scan to the patient by selecting 3-6 landmarks on the screen and tracing around those landmarks in the mouth with a tracer tool.
The registration process that formerly involved making a thermoplastic stent, taking an additional CBCT scan with a significant opportunity for irrecoverable user error, has become an efficient, user friendly and easily repeatable 2 minute process.
Dynamic over Static

View the CT data and change the plan at any time, even during surgery.
Guidance immediately available following planning – no need to wait weeks for guide to arrive.
More predictable – stent problems can be detected and corrected on the spot.
Accuracy check always available – large errors immediately observed and addressed.
User friendly and intuitive planning – no need to design the guide and sleeves.
Lower cost per procedure. No expensive kits or specific drills.
Better irrigation during drilling of open osteotomy site.
Access to implantation site
No need for longer drills which interfere or preclude usage in posterior implantation sites with minimal jaw opening.
Fully open – any implant, any drill system, any handpiece. No need to buy special kits.
Guides the implant itself, not just the drilling.
Solution for Fully Edentulous Cases
For fully edentulous jaws, or when the teeth are insufficiently stable or expected to be removed during the implantation procedure, Navident offers a unique Bone Anchoring Solution. A single small diameter implant (SDI) is temporarily inserted in the jaw, either vertically or horizontally, to provide a stable bone anchor. A special version of the NaviStent arm, with a bracket designed to provide strong and stable coupling to the head of the implant, is then used to attach the CT-Marker or the JawTag to the jaw. The bracket has a built-in safety snap mechanism to prevent damage to the bone or the SDI when the CT-Marker or JawTag are accidentally hit.
“For the 30 implants where the mini-implant approach was used, mean deviations of 0.78 mm at entry, 1.22 mm at apex and 1.91° of angulation were achieved. These results are statistically consistent with the results obtained using Navident’s partially edentulous protocol.”

NOTE: Navident is cleared by the FDA in the United States for use with partially edentulous patients. This solution for use with completely edentulous patients is not currently available for use in the United States.
“Having participated in guided surgery since 1999, first utilizing the beta version of 3D planning software and stereolithographic guides and ever since participating in the digital explosion of technology, I am now more excited than ever with dynamic navigation that Navident is leading. The workflow that we are implementing is awesome and I believe the future of guided implant treatment planning and delivery for our patients.”

Dr. Jan D’Haese,
Dr. Natalie Wong,
Each and every step of the procedure has been simplified to allow easy integration in your everyday implant dentistry armamentarium and clinical protocols. Visualizing anatomical structures and the location of your surgical bur in real time is a powerful advantage that will bring safety, speed and precision to your clinical procedures. I love it and the patients love it. My back and neck also love it as I work in a perfect ergonomic position. I invite you to join the family of dentists that have adopted Navigation in their practices. You won’t regret.
