The Future of Dental Implant Surgery is Here
For over 50 years, dental implants have successfully restored smiles and chewing ability for millions worldwide. But like any field, implant dentistry continues progressing thanks to innovative technologies that push boundaries and raise standards of care. Here at Discovery Dental & Implants, we strive to deliver the most cutting-edge surgical techniques that yield ideal results for our Las Vegas patients. One such advancement revolutionizing treatment is robot-assisted implant placement systems.
Traditionally, implants have been placed freehand using mental navigation and experience alone to guide drills and devices into position. While producing excellent long-term results for many, this technique requires immense surgical skill, and the natural human limitations of sight and fine motor control still pose risks.
Even the most gifted surgeons run chances of imprecise angulation, stripping critical microstructures like nerves, or disrupting blood flow – all factors that can potentially derail integration and compromise optimal function or health.
Enter advanced robotic technology. As with other specialties, robotics have migrated into dentistry to maximize precision planning and replicable accuracy down to mere fractions of a millimeter. State-of-the-art systems like the Yomi utilized at Discovery Dental leverage preoperative 3D imaging, virtual surgical simulations, and automated guidance systems to map out ideal paths for each case. Small fiducial markers relate real anatomy to digital templates in real time during osteotomies and placement. The robotic arm and surgical attachment refine traditional drills and tools to minute automated movements under the surgeon’s control and vision.
This level of robotic control results in benefits traditional manual techniques simply cannot match. For one, it allows for incredibly precise nerve avoidance. Structures like the inferior alveolar nerve that supplies sensation to the lower lip and chin are often millimeters from implant sites. With robotics, even the slightest deviations can be instantly corrected to steer clear of potential injury.
Some top reasons patients choose our Las Vegas practice’s robot-assisted approach include:
Yomi’s robotic control allows for barely-there incisions that reduce trauma, swelling, and recovery times. Placement is precise to prevent unnecessary tissue disruption.
The robot correlates your pre-op scans to your jaw in real-time, detecting high-risk locations like mandibular canals containing inferior alveolar nerves to steer placement adjustments.
Strategic angling lets your implants obtain sturdy support even with bone loss, bypassing painful graft harvest/healing steps for a smoother procedure.
Its minimized invasiveness means less post-op pain medication reliance and earlier return to normal activities versus traditional freehand techniques.
Our patients love knowing state-of-the-art technology contributed to implant success. It’s why over 95% are still functioning strong years later to refresh your whole smile’s outlook.
The results speak for themselves. Our patients consistently experience virtually painless, trauma-free surgery from smaller incisions needing minimal sutures. Swelling and bruising subsides much faster with more conservative flaps. Perhaps most importantly, achieving targeted implant positions perfectly parallel to essential zones gives patients confidence in predictable long-term function and aesthetics. More advanced cases involving bone grafting or challenging midline agger canals gain prosecution through robotics
While some argue costs of robotics remain unfeasible for dentistry, the reality is that it more than pays for itself through shorter sessions enabling higher daily case volumes. Tissue preservation and reliable outcomes ease anxieties while reducing post-surgical visits and future complications requiring costly revisions. Smile restoration is a lifelong investment and robotic dentistry delivers peace of mind through expert, meticulous precision from day one.
Here at Discovery Dental, robotics allows us to push boundaries and consistently provide next-level care even for complex presentations. If you desire the latest technology and gold-standard accuracy for your oral reconstruction, discover the future of implants.
