Navident Implant Surgery Guidance

Cart-NavidentIt turns out the level of precision needed for guided implant placement is actually higher than that needed for brain surgery.

The computer age has been here for some time and surgical navigation or computer aided surgery has been here for most of it. Since the 1980’s Neurosurgeons have been using surgical navigation devices designed by the engineers from ClaroNav. Now accepted as the standard of care in Neurosurgery, Spinal surgery and Orthopedic surgery, Dental surgery is about to experience a navigation boom.

This system allows surgeons to perform guided surgery the same day the CBCT is taken. There is no need to send the data off to a lab for analysis and the fabrication of a guide.

There are three elements to the system. First the CBCT 3D image data is loaded into the planning software to determine  the best placement including size, length and angulation of the implant. Next two optical targets are attached to the patient and to the implant handpiece. These are calibrated and a camera can now determine if the handpiece is properly positioned to drill the implant hole.

The operator watches a monitor that displays the drill position and guides the surgeon to the proper position just like a video game.

Navident is currently undergoing extensive clinical trials and is expected to be available in the US later this year.
