Guided Implant Surgery
C-Dental provides ConeBeam CT scans for implant placement. Our standard implant survey includes prepared cross sectional images of the area of interest and panoramic images extracted from the full arch scan. These images are to scale with a measurement scale printed on the images and include indication lines for the IAN.
As a referring doctor of C-Dental you also have access to a free 1 year subscription to the In2Guide software with no initial fee.
In2Guide requires an annual $250 maintenance fee that is assessed one year after the install date. You only pay if you want to continue using the software for another year.
The software allows you to virtually plan implant surgeries using iTero 3D digital impressions merged to CBCT scans, and order surgical guides. This software allows you to accurately evaluate the implant site making linear measurements, volumetric measurements, and bone density measurements – all while having complete 3-dimensional control of your cross-sectional view of the CBCT. Our CEO, Jerry Peck, will provide hour long treatment planning assistance meetings over the phone and internet at no additional charge, for as long as necessary and as frequent as they are beneficial to you.

C-Dental is a master scan site for all major implant case planning softwares. Per your request C-Dental will convert CBCT and intraoral scan data to be viewed in your implant case planning software. The data can be sent to you via download from our cloud server or by cd. If we do not have your implant case planning software we can export your patient’s CBCT image in the necessary DICOM format for import to your software.
Implant Systems & Tools
Implant case planning software has universal compatibility with name brand and generic implant systems. Using a surgical guide requires the use of a surgical guide drill kit. These drills are different from standard implant drill kits – featuring a stop that controls depth. Surgical guide kits can be purchased from most drill providers (Strauman, Hiossen, Astra, etc.). Before buying a kit, consult with your sales rep to see if that company will lend you a kit or the necessary tools to perform a planned surgery.
