FAQ

What is the benefit of a CT-Scan?

 

The placement of implants requires an experienced surgeon as well as thorough pre-operative planning to minimise the risk of nerve or sinus injuries. The CT-Scan produces a 3-dimensional image of the anatomical area in which, for example, dental implants can be placed. That will allow the surgeon to plan the precise location of the implants.  A surgical drilling guide can be produced based on the CT-Scan using special software like ‘SimPlant’ or ‘NobelGuide’.
