Dr. Kuhn plans the implant placement ahead of time using 3D implant planning software.
The CT scanner is used to scan detailed 3D images which are then fed into special implant planning software, nSequence. Dr. Kuhn uses this implant planning software to virtually plan the surgery. He is able to work out ahead of time the exact angle and position in which to place the implant or implants. As a result, exploratory cutting of the gums is not necessary, making for a minimally invasive procedure.
The digital planning also lets Dr. Kuhn optimize the procedure for maximum efficiency. That means you’ll spend less time in the dental chair, and have the highest assurance your implants will be placed in the optimal configuration.
