A tissue-supported surgical guide is a minimally invasive surgical template which is seated directly on the gingiva (i.e. soft tissues) and therefore requires no surgical flap.
This product is used for placing implants in completely edentulous cases.
It takes 5 business days to make and deliver a tissue-supported guide to your office after final confirmation.
The patient must be completely edentulous and currently wearing a denture. In some cases, a scan appliance will need to be made.
Tissue-supported guides are minimally invasive and require no flaps for implant placement. Additionally, by using the Dual Scan Protocol, we can have prosthetically driven implant treatment planning which makes for easier and better implant placement.
