Surgical Guide Planning

PRO-Craft's Dental Lab Implant Products

Surgical Guides

Our 3D guided dental surgery systems are straightforward and effective. We preplan cases with our licensed software, then host a live online meeting to develop and finalize the case planning. Or if you don’t have the time for a live online meeting, we will email you a 3D video with our case planning and imaging and audible description of the treatment plan for your review, saving you valuable time and out-of-office training. Please call us about this option for best case selection.

Tooth supported surgical guide

Tooth-Supported Surgical Guide

Fabricated for single implant placement or partially edentulous patients. Easily reproducible landmarks (teeth) are used for retention and support.

Tooth-supported surgical guides are common and easily adaptable to various clinical situations. One benefit is that consistently reproducible landmarks (teeth) can be used for support, stability and retention. The accuracy and precision of implants placed through tooth-borne guides have been proven in both benchtop and clinical environments. The most common utilization of tooth-borne guides is for single or multiple implants for fixed restorations. Although these guides have been shown to result in predictable restorative outcomes, it is important for the practitioner to be cognizant of available space and additional guided drill length, especially when placing posterior implants. 

Upload your CBCT in a zipped folder along with STLs and photos if needed. Send your cases here: info@pro-craft.com. We manage cases from diagnostic work-up and CT scan appliance fabrication (when needed) to implant placement, and provisional and final restoration. PRO-Craft can support you with immediate dentures and trough guides.

Tissue-Supported Surgical Guide

Gaining its main support and retention from the mucosa, the tissue-supported guides are commonly fabricated based on the existing removable prosthesis.

As the name suggests, a tissue-supported surgical guide uses intraoral soft tissues for support and stability. This guide is commonly fabricated based on an existing removable prosthesis. Possible concerns with mucosal support involve the lack of retention during surgery and variation in tissue thickness and quality — which is a common complaint also seen with complete dentures. A tissue-supported guide has the potential to undergo movement in varying directions that could increase the inaccuracy of implant placement. This, along with flap reflection, may introduce additional complexity during implant placement.

Tissue-supported guides are designed from existing or new full dentures, and always require a dual scan. If the denture is not well-fitting, please perform a hard reline (not soft, and remove the soft if it exists and perform a hard reline). Scan the appliance in the mouth with the patient biting on the guide, not open separated. Scan the appliance again outside the mouth resting on foam or cotton rolls. This is the dual scan. Send us a bite and the opposing model. Upload your CBCTs in zipped folders marked “patient” and “appliance” and send us full face full smile photos if needed for prosthetic design. PRO-Craft can support you with immediate dentures and trough guides.

Bone-Supported Surgical Guide

Usually used for edentulous patients, this type of guide gains its support from the load-bearing areas or the divergence of the alveolar ridge.

A bone-supported surgical guide is generally used for full-arch edentulous implant cases. This type of guide derives its support from load-bearing areas and/or the natural divergence of the alveolar ridge seen in both maxillary and mandibular arches in a corona-apical direction. Bone-supported guides are difficult to fabricate and accurately place intraorally due to the extent of flap reflection needed for access, as well as inaccuracies that can result from the digital workflow. Although the difficulties associated with bone-supported guides are well reported, they may be mitigated with proper planning, accurate imaging and operator experience.

Bone-supported guides are available for most cases. Simply upload your CBCT scan and provide the information on our online Rx. If the case is to involve an immediate prosthetic, PRO-Craft can support you with immediate dentures and trough guides.

If cases are more complicated than full dentures against natural teeth please call 877-4-THE-LAB (484-3522).
