Saturday, January 19, 2019 • 5:30-6:15pm
The benefits of the osseodensification protocol are well known and accepted throughout the literature. The preservation of bone and the increase in primary stability are the basis of the technique. Guided surgery is utilized to improve accuracy in implant placement and long term success. However, most of these surgical guides prohibit maximum irrigation of the drills and limited visibility. The osseodensification protocol can be combined with the C-Guide™ System. This is a universal, keyless guide that is digitally planned to provide accuracy, maximum irrigation, and visualization during the technique. This is combined with a Telescopic Guide to control depth. The combination of both the C-Guide™ System and Telestop™ Gauge afford a solution to show off the found with the traditional stents. Discussed will be the digital workflow involved in planning and Utilizing the C-Guide™ System.
