Experience Better Dental Implants With X-Nav Technology

Dental implants are a popular, durable, and permanent solution for patients with broken or missing teeth. The only real drawback of dental implants is the traditionally lengthy and invasive placement procedure. However, new state-of-the-art technology is now available at Lanzi Burke Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons to significantly improve freehand implant surgery.

The X-Nav Dynamic Guided Navigation is an interactive, computer-guided system that provides us with real-time 3D navigation for better visualization, enhanced control, and precise and accurate placement in a less invasive and shorter surgery. A study by the Journal of Oral Implantology determined X-Guide navigated surgery to be 11 times more accurate than freehand surgery.

What Is X-Nav Guided Surgery?

X-Nav technology is designed to elevate the surgeon’s precision and control during the procedure and make dental implant placement easier and more accurate. The system’s software allows surgeons to capture 3D scans of your oral cavity and jawbone and use them during surgery to visualize the jawbone’s interior and exterior to pinpoint the optimal location, angle, and depth of implant placement.

The X-Guide’s advanced system features a real-time, 360-degree view of drill position and anatomy during surgery. Essentially, the surgical navigation system serves as an image-guided GPS system, with cameras continuously tracking and guiding the surgeon’s every motion during the procedure, resulting in highly accurate and precise implant placement. Benefits of X-Nav guided dental implant surgery include:

  • Greater accuracy: X-Nav technology allows surgeons to create an exact blueprint for implant placement and real-time feedback during surgery, allowing for minor adjustments to increase stability.
  • Greater efficiency: X-Nav makes surgery more efficient, providing smaller incisions and a shorter sedation period.
  • Faster healing: The precision allowed by the system’s computer-guided placement reduces the amount of trauma to the jawbone, providing you with less pain and inflammation and a quicker recovery.

Through X-Nav technology, your implants will have improved stability, greater longevity, and superior function of natural teeth.

What Should I Expect During the X-Nav Procedure?

During the initial consultation, your surgeon will create an “X-clip” impression by warming the X-clip to soften it and squeezing it firmly to make an impression of one to three teeth. Once hardened, the X-clip will be placed back in your mouth, and the surgeon will begin making 3D scans with an X-Nav-compatible Cone Beam 3D system.

Using the system’s planning program, your surgeon will incorporate the scans to plan the ideal location to place your implants with special tools such as parallel planning, virtual teeth, and nerve visualization to ensure accuracy.

Before surgery, the surgeon will calibrate trackers in a handpiece and your X-clip, registering them to your 3D plan for real-time precision and control during the procedure. The tracker-containing X-clip will be placed onto your teeth, and the system will calculate the length of the drill bit and implant location.

During surgery, your surgeon will employ an interactive turn-by-turn guide, which serves as the drill’s GPS to enhance the handpiece’s every movement as incisions are made and the implants placed. Following surgery, you will be provided with specific instructions for your recovery and how to care for your new implants.
