Presentation The guided surgery technique is spreading more and more. Literature, if before was divided into skeptics and favorable, agreed today in the extreme usefulness and reliability of this technique. Numerous are the advantages: greater precision, less postoperative problems, less invasive for the patient, intraoperative time reduced. The only stumbling block is to handle the correct technique in order to obtain and standardize these positive results. This course will teach you how to use this surgical approach so that you can reproduce autonomously on your own patients.
In the present video the treatment of an edentulous site in first premolar area is represented. By considering the patient expectations a standard loading protocol is selected for the treatment of the edentulous site. A normal occlusion feature was already checked. A normal bone crest is present by considering both horizontal and vertical dimensions. A simple single horizontal incision without releasing incisions is performed to guarantee and adequate access to the native bone. The drilling phases are following the CLC implant system protocol. A correct three-dimensional implant axis is strictly taken in to account. Also the interproximal spaces will be saved by selecting a proper implant diameter. Such procedure is important to have the chance to save a complete interproximal papilla volume. A primary closure of the wound is selected and a submerged closure screw is placed into position. A standard implant loading protocol will be provided.
