The Galileos® 3D Dental Conebeam is a revolutionary planning and surgical implementation procedure that enables Dr. Casteen to perform computer-guided implant surgery. This allows Dr. Casteen to conveniently perform this awesome treatment on his patients without the inconvenience of referring patients.
The process begins when a Galileos® 3D Dental Conebeam scan is taken of the patient’s jawbone; this is conveniently done in our office and takes approximately fifteen seconds. The scan allows for the generation of a three-dimensional model of the jawbone that can then be used to plan the implant placement without the presence of the patient. The results are incredibly accurate implant placement and a dramatically shorter surgery for our patients as compared to traditional implant surgery.
The surgical treatment is based on computer-guided keyhole surgery that is minimally invasive, which reduces pain, swelling and treatment time considerably as compared to conventional implant therapy. Each planning process is unique and is based entirely upon the specific considerations of each patient. The 3D surgical planning program results in optimal implant placement.
With this concept, the placing of the implant, abutment and restorative crown or bridge is simultaneous, by using either conventional modeling or computer aided-3D design. This method reduces the number of appointments and chair time, which means fewer interruptions in everyday life.
