technology, according to Millennium Research Group

WALTHAM, Mass., May 6 /PRNewswire/ -- According to Millennium Research Group's US Markets for Dental Implants 2008 report, the incorporation of guided surgery technology into dental implant procedures will increase dramatically over the next few years and by 2012, nearly 25% of dental implants placed will take advantage of some form of guided surgery technology.

Guided surgery technology is helping to improve clinical confidence in dental implant therapy. This technology uses a digital x-ray combined with specialized software that helps the dentist to visualize and plan the placement of a dental implant. Furthermore, many clinicians also use a surgical drilling template that is manufactured based on the digital x-ray of the patient's mouth. The drilling template is used during dental implant placement and allows dentists to know exactly where they need to place the dental implant.

"Guided surgery technologies are gaining in popularity because they help to remove some of the uncertainties and risks associated with a dental implant procedure," says Chris Shutsa, Senior Analyst at Millennium Research Group. "Using guided surgery, implantologists can more carefully identify anatomical structures that could potentially complicate a dental implant placement procedure. Accordingly, clinicians can better plan the procedure."
