X-Nav (X-Guide) Technology
Pacific Palisades, CA
Thanks to advancements in technology and techniques, dental implant treatment is safer, easier, and more successful than ever before. At Palisades Surgical Arts, we utilize a relatively new 3-D imaging technology known as X-Guide. More specifically, we use the name brand X-Nav system to ensure our patients experience the best possible results!
What Is X-Guide?
X-Guide is a revolutionary new system that allows us to plan and perform your implant surgery with the highest level of precision and accuracy. This guided system utilizes 3-D imaging technology, also known as CBCT, which stands for cone beam computed tomography. CBCT gives us a detailed three-dimensional image of your teeth, soft tissues, and underlying bone structure within a single scan.
The X-Nav system also gives us much more control over the exact placement of the implant, including its position, depth, and angle. The interactive, turn-by-turn guidance acts as a GPS during your implant surgery. The result is a more functional and esthetically-pleasing restoration.
How We Use X-Guide?
It all begins with your consultation appointment. During your consultation, we will review your medical history and perform a comprehensive examination first to determine if dental implants are right for you. Once we conclude that you are a suitable candidate, we can begin treatment planning with X-Nav.
We use the extensive X-guide system to predetermine the placement of your implant post, which serves as the root component of restoration. If you need multiple tooth restoration, X-guide helps us space out your implants to maximize support. Thanks to X-guide, our full-arch restorations are extremely durable and require few dental implants.
Once we have developed an appropriate treatment plan, we can schedule your implant surgery. During your procedure, we use the X-Nav system to implement same-day guided surgical techniques. Guided surgery helps ensure the success of your dental implants through improved precision. It also provides a more effective and comfortable restoration that works well with any surrounding teeth.
Benefits of X-Nav System
We specialize in the X-Nav system due to its many benefits. Some of these benefits include:
||Improved Treatment Planning: X-Guide allows us to confidently and successfully visualize your implant surgery through virtual means. The proper preparation can drastically improve the success rate of your implant treatment.
||Precise Placement: CBCT technology gives us a more detailed and nuanced look at your existing teeth, gums, and supportive jawbone. We use the information to place your implant post with an unmatched level of precision. This ensures the perfect fit for your occlusion, preventing problems related to a misaligned bite.
||Easier Navigation: During your surgery, X-Nav helps us place your implant in a precise and predetermined position. Easier navigation of your maxillofacial structures results in a faster surgery and minimizes post-operative complications, such as implant failure.
||Optimal Results: After treatment with the X-Nav, you should be able to enjoy the many additional benefits of successful implant treatment. Precise placement creates an implant-supported restoration that looks, feels, and functions just like your natural teeth.
