Three-dimensional computer planning is possible with a digital volume tomograph (DVT). It is performed before certain dental procedures, for example before implantation. With the help of digital volume tomography, several cross-sectional images of the jaw are made, which ultimately results in a three-dimensional image. The 3D image provides accurate representations of the anatomical structures of the jaw and is therefore much more accurate than conventional two-dimensional images. The dentist can see exactly where the bone has sufficient density and height and where the mandibular nerve passes. The position of the implant can thus be determined very precisely.

3D diagnostics enables a minimally invasive procedure - without a scalpel

Dentistry has made remarkable progress in recent years. The development of implantology enables the solution of the most complex dental problems. Our clear goal is to perform the surgery as gently and safely as possible. After this procedure, patients can function normally because inflammation, swelling and pain in the wound are much less common than with conventional treatment.

Unlike classical implantology (where incisions are made in the gums and small holes are prepared in bone to expose the area being treated) minimally invasive implantology can often be used without a scalpel. The basis for this is 3D diagnostics via computer navigation that is carried out in advance. Based on accurate data, implants can be placed into a single patient jaw structure with millimeter precision using a 3D printed implant template. Tissue and nerves are optimally spared and healing is much faster.

In the case of mini implants, they are placed directly through the gums using a small hole. The procedure requires minimal surgical effort. It is especially suitable for elderly patients in whom major surgery is no longer an option.
