Precision from planning to implant placement
To help our patients with more predictable outcomes, through more accurate treatment planning and implant placement, The White Bridge Clinic has invested in state-of-the-art real-time computer guidance technology which allows dental implants to be placed with more precision than ever before.
The Navident dynamic navigation system uses the same technology that is the standard of care in spinal and neuro-surgery fields. Navident allows the position and angle of the drill tip to be calibrated in three-dimensional space and an in-situ accuracy check to be carried out before drilling commences. The position, angle and depth of the drill or implant are continuously displayed in a simple graphic, guiding the surgeon to follow the plan, with no loss of tactile feedback.
Navident in practice
The target position for each implant site is planned quickly and easily in the Navident software using the imported CBCT DICOM data. After registering the relative position of two optical tracking markers to the patient and drill, the software tracks the markers in real time using the stereoscopic camera.
Using the fixed relationship of each planned drill site to the patient tracking marker, the navigation component of the software instructs the surgeon, on how and where to move their hand in real time. Continuous feedback is displayed through a simple graphic on the computer screen. This real-time tracking and guidance allows the surgeon to precisely guide the drill tip to the planned implant position and depth, using a freehand technique.
To make your dental implant treatment easier and more convenient, The White Bridge Clinic has invested in the same state-of-the-art dynamic navigation technology that is the standard of care in spinal and neuro-surgery fields. This ensures your implants are placed with great precision and streamlines the process, reducing the time you need to spend in the chair.
