What Is Guided Implant Surgery?

Few services can help patients achieve the kind of functionality that’s possible with dental implants. Because they can be used to replace everything from a single tooth to a full row of teeth, they’re remarkably versatile. Plus, because they mimic nature’s design, the finished results will both look and feel natural.

However, restoring a patient’s smile with dental implants takes a lot of planning, particularly in the surgical phase. That’s why Dr. Schlossberg and Dr. Klotz have invested in the tools necessary for guided implant surgery.

The whole goal of guided implant surgery is to streamline the surgical process and increase patient satisfaction. How do we do this? With 3D technology and special planning software that allows us to create a detailed surgical template. The template we create for you will remove the guesswork of surgery so that, on the day of your procedure, we’ll know exactly where to place your implants. On your end, that means you can look forward to a quicker procedure, among other benefits.

But Are Dental Implants Right for You?

To be a candidate for dental implants requires having enough bone to support one or more implant posts. Dr. Schlossberg and Dr. Klotz would be happy to talk to you about whether implants are right for you. With a consultation at Bethesda Sedation Dentistry, we can assess your needs and recommend a plan based on what we find. If you’re not a candidate, we can recommend another service to help you restore your smile’s appearance and functionality.
