Free-hand dental implant surgery

Free-hand is the most common surgical technique for dental implant surgery. In free-hand surgery, the surgeon uses a hand-held instrument to place your implant. The surgeon places the implant after looking closely at your bone, gums, and nearby teeth. Exact implant placement can sometimes be more difficult with free-hand surgery due to human error.

Dental implant surgery with a surgical guide.

Surgical guides fit to your teeth with guide holes for the implant. Guides do not allow the surgeon to make changes to plan during surgery. This may result in delays to complete your surgery. Sometimes surgical guides may not work well due to poor fit. This may also result in delays to complete your surgery. Guides may not be a good option for hard-to-reach areas. However, guides may make it easier to place your implants in exactly the right place. Guides may also allow for less invasive surgery. These are some reasons surgeons may recommend guides.
