Dynamic Image Guided Surgery (Stereotactic Surgery) is a new and exciting field of dental surgery. Dr. Emery is one of the inventors of the X-Guide. This type of surgery was pioneered in medicine. It is used by neurosurgeons and other medical surgical specialties to allow the surgeon to “virtually” see into their patient real time while they operate and “guide” their instruments to accurate locations real time using computer guidance. X-Guide is the newest and most advanced system approved for the placement of dental implants. Dr. Emery uses this technology to place dental implants, as well as perform other oral and maxillofacial procedures that require extreme precision and accuracy. There are a number of steps required to perform these procedures:
Dr. Emery has extensive experience with dynamic image navigation for both implant placement and other complex oral and maxillofacial procedures. Presently, he is involved with the development of the next generation of these devices to make surgery more predictable, safer, and less painful.
