Dr. Rennaker is highly qualified and experienced in wisdom teeth extractions and the surgical placement of dental implants.
We use the very best technology and hold our standard of accuracy and excellence to all of our surgical procedures. Guided implantation ensures enhanced safety and reliability and delivers convincing clinical and aesthetic results. In many cases it creates the basis for minimally invasive (“flapless”) surgery.
The procedure is very simple. The dentist heats up a thermoplastic material, places it on the implant site and inserts the reference body. The thermoplastic material is then allowed to harden for approximately five minutes.
The resultant scanning template (stent) is positioned in the patient’s mouth. A 3D X-ray is then acquired. The Sirona GALAXIS software merges the CEREC and CBCT data, thus creating the basis for the precise planning of the implant position. The planning data is exported to the CEREC software, which then mills a so-called “drill body”, ready for insertion in place of the reference body. The surgical guide is now ready for use. Various drill keys are available for different drill diameters.
