PROSTHODONTIST-CUSTOMIZED SURGICAL GUIDES
Dental implant surgery for a single missing tooth requires proper planning and the right resources.
While single implant placement may look simple, some of the biggest errors we see in implant placement come in the restoration of a single missing tooth. We help our clients identify areas of missing buccal bone, vital structures such as the inferior alveolar nerve, mandibular concavity, floor of the mouth, maxillary sinus and incisive foramen.
The ideal placement of a single implant through CT-based surgical guides prevent cantilevering of the final crown and food entrapment. Proper planning allows the dentist to plan for an all-on-four restoration to avoid cement entrapment below the gum line. Planning with the end in mind, we help our clients idealize the occlusal scheme of the final restoration to avoid bone loss and undue forces on the implant.
All information between the dentist and Implant Genius is exchanged through a secure, user-friendly web tool.
Cost of implant planning services:
1-3 implants per arch: $500.00
4 or more implants per arch: $70 *Additional Per Implant
Our experienced prosthodontists work on creating surgical guides, customized for each patient and case. These guides help a dentist perform dental implant surgeries with absolute precision and control.
Pilot Starter Drill Surgical Guide
We believe that every single tooth implant surgery should be at least performed with a Pilot starter surgical guide. All implant clinicians agree that the very first drill in the implant placement process is the most important in setting the final position of the dental implant. If the first drill is not in the ideal spot, the clinician will have to work much harder to correct the osteotomy site. However, if the first osteotomy drill is guided, it will result in the perfect first osteotomy site. This first drill position can then be easily followed by the clinician to result in a perfect implant position.

Fully Guided Surgical Guide
When placing multiple implants for a bridge, it is crucial that the implants are parallel to each other. Our fully guided surgical guide allows for a precise placement of multiple implants. The fully guided surgical guide is also useful in placement of implants in areas where vital structures such as roots are to be avoided. In maxillary anterior teeth where the buccolingual inclination of implants is critical, we plan fully guided surgical guides to drive implants in exact angulations with respect to the adjacent teeth. Fully guided surgical guides are particularly useful in fully edentulous patients where we try to maximize A-P spread and avoid undue cantilevering forces.

Bone Reduction Guides
Some implant cases require a very precise bone reduction to allow for the final prosthetic space. Based on CT scan measurements, we fabricate bone reduction guides that aid the implant surgeon in quick and predictable bone reduction before implant placement.
