Dynamic navigation for placement in augmented sites

  A recent study from the Medical University of Silesia has examined the clinical application of dynamic navigation for implant placement in sites with bone augmentation. The study involved a clinical and radiological assessment of the healing process.

Four healthy patients who had experienced bone augmentation procedures were examined for the study. Cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) scans were taken of optical markers attached to the patients’ arches. This data was loaded into the navigation system computer. The implants were placed under local anaesthesia in accordance with the pre-surgical plan. Flapless surgery with the use of punch tissue technique was performed.

After three to six months the implants were uncovered and the prosthetic was introduced. CBCT scans were taking post-procedure and implant stability was also measured.

The treatment proved effective in all instances and went according to the pre-surgical plans. The healing process was uneventful and the implant placement was performed after complete bone regeneration.

Overall the authors note that the dynamic navigation led to a minimally invasive and clinically effective outcome which reduced patient discomfort and risk of infection, as well as resulting in a faster recovery compared with conventional procedures.

This study was presented as an e-poster at the 2018 EAO Congress.
