Do you remember the last time you travelled anywhere without Google maps? I really don’t. We rely on technology to make our day better, and our plans better…. And also to make our work better!
Dynamic Navigation is as Sci-fi as it can get! It is the application of real-time navigation in many fields of medicine. Today we are specifically discussing dental implant surgery.
Dynamic Navigation via the Claronav Navident machine was brought to India first by Dr. Rahul Shah of Sahyog Maxillofacial Centre, Thane in 2017. Navigation is the name given to this technology as that is exactly what it does. So, how does it improve dental implant placement precision? First let us understand what this technology is.
We need a couple of 3D scans of the patient wanting to get a dental implant treatment done. We have the CBCT scanning machine in house for your convenience. These scans gives us an exact idea of how your bone is and what we want to achieve.
Next is the planning phase. On our virtual implant planning software, we plan and decide the dental implant site, size and exactly how the implant will be located in 3D. Now the magic begins!
When the dental implant surgery is performed, there is a screen which shows the patient’s CBCT 3D scan. The patient’s actual position is overlapped or superimposed with the scan. When the surgeon starts the surgery, he can actually understand and see on the screen where the instrument is in the patient’s bone.
So yes! It doesn’t get more precise than this. Just like your GPS tells you where you are, where are the available routes, where traffic is increasing and where is your destination- All these same details we come to know when we use dynamic navigation for dental implants.
Dynamic navigation in dental implant treatments ensures that patients receive the most accurate, efficient, and customized care, which is particularly vital for individuals seeking dental solutions through dental tourism in India.
More precision means better outcomes. More precision means more predictability. More precision means happy patients!
