Simplant creates accurate 3-D images to plan surgery
Until recently, an oral surgeon was limited to using two dimensional images to plan a surgery. This would give them a satisfactory approximation on bone height. However other factors such as bone width could not be determined until the bone was exposed during the surgery. Simplant technology significantly reduces any element of surprise because it produces a three dimensional representation of the jaw bone. Based on the accurate measurements of bone height and width, the surgeon can use it as a blueprint to plan the course and requirements of the surgery. The details of this surgical guide can be emailed to the manufacturing facility fabricating the implants to fit the precise requirements needed for a successful surgery.
