In implant dentistry, surgical guides increase the predictability of treatment outcomes. Conventionally, implant placement is routinely performed freehand, however, this can increase the risk of damage to vital structures.

Surgical guides or stents give clinicians more confidence to accurately place implants in partially or fully edentulous cases. Preplanned surgery reduces stress, decreases error, and leads to better long-term outcomes for the patient.

360Imaging ™ offers a wide variety of surgical guides fabricated
from various biocompatible, FDA approved resins:

PILOT SURGICAL GUIDES

Pilot Surgical Guides

Used with the initial drill only to ensure the accurate position and orientation of the implant. The rest of the placement procedure is completed freehand.

TOOTH SUPPORTED SURGICAL GUIDES

Tooth-Supported Surgical Guides

Usually fabricated for single implant placement or partially edentulous patients. Easily reproducible landmarks (i.e. teeth) are used for retention and support.

TISSUE SUPPORTED SURGICAL GUIDES

Tissue-Supported Surgical Guides

Gaining its main support and retention from soft tissues (i.e. mucosa), our tissue-supported guides are commonly fabricated based on an existing removable prosthesis.

BONE SUPPORTED SURGICAL GUIDES

Bone-Supported Surgical Guides

Used for edentulous patients, this type of guide gains its support from the load-bearing areas along the alveolar ridge.
