Guides

  • We are able to offer printed guides in resin and also metal printed guides. These guides are printed to a high quality utilising a laboratory printer.
  • Guides can be tissue or tooth borne.
  • Simple guides or full surgical guides are available for a variety of software and drill/implant systems.
  • We can plan the guide for you, or you can send the file ready to print.

Simple Guide

  • Planning is done with Blue Sky Plan
  • Simple guides can be used for pilot hole access alone.
  • A CT scan is required but it is not necessary to use a fiducial marker.
  • A model is required and this will be scanned at the lab or a digital intraoral scan can be sent.

Standard Guide

  • Planning is done with SMOP
  • With the Standard guide the entire osteotomy and implant placement can be completed using the guide.
  • More accurate than a simple guide.
  • This kind of guide is specified where a higher degree of control and precision is indicated than for the simple guide. Because of the reduced amount of coolant that can access via the tube guide, this is not suitable for Densah® drills.
  • Specific drill surgical kits are used for different implant systems. Please ask about the implant systems we can work with.
