Computer Guided Implant Surgery

Using CBCT scans, virtual treatment planning, and highly specialized training, we are able to provide guided implant placement for our patients. 

Dr. Boynton improves the safety, accuracy, and predictability of implant placement through the use of computer-guided surgery. Every surgical case starts by obtaining a cone beam computer tomography (CBCT) image of the site to receive the implant. This is a 3-dimensional image of the implant site that allows visualization of the bone and vital anatomical structures. Dr. Boynton then performs the surgery virtually. This information can then be used to generate a surgical guide, which is used during the actual surgery to accurately place the implant.

This advanced technology allows Dr. Boynton to take multiple aspects of implant placement and restoration into consideration, resulting in optimal aesthetics, function, and longevity for the patient’s final restoration. Working with a 3-D model also allows the patient to better understand the procedures and visualize the end result.
