Static Guided Surgery is done primarily to place dental implants. Static Image Guided Implant Surgery involves a number of steps.
Presently there are only a few implant static guide manufacturers in the United States. Most of these systems are specific to single implant manufacturers; these include guides systems for Nobel, Straumann, Zimmer, Biomet 3i and Biohorizons to name a few. As of 2016, Dr. Emery has completed implant reconstruction on over 600 patients, placing over 2000 implants using static guides. Dr. Emery places his patients' implants using “open” guide systems that allow them to place implants using a number of different implant manufacturers. The two largest guide manufacturers are Anatomage and Simplant. Both are available at our image guided implant center.
