Guided Implant Surgery:
Guided implant surgery is amazing. BEFORE the patient comes in for their dental implant Dr. Nugent knows exactly where the implant is going. As a patient, wouldn’t you want an easier more precise surgery? Dr. Nugent uses an advanced Cone Beam 3-D xray and computer technology to do the surgery on the computer. Then Dr. Nugent orders a custom surgical guide that allows him to place the implant exactly where he planed it.
Once the patient is completely numb, Dr. Nugent inserts the surgical guide. The surgical guide is like a football mouthpiece that fits securely onto the remaining teeth. Where the implant is to be placed there is a metal circle that prevents Dr. Nugent from going in at the wrong angle. Now it is simply a matter of going in sequence and drilling bone to allow for the dental implant placement.
Using technology to deliver predictable implant dentistry is awesome. Dr. Nugent wants patients to have an easy dental experience

Dr. Nugent love to leverage technology in order to deliver better results. Dr. Nugent has a 3D printer in his office. Therefore, all the digital surgery planning that is done on the computer can be used to generate a surgical guide. Then Dr. Nugent prints the surgical guide on his 3D printer.
