  • Guided surgery is cool and all, but you have to understand the fundamentals of implant surgery and prosthodontics first. Digital planning, 3D printing/milling, and fully-guided implant placement should be used to make our treatment more predictable, but it shouldn't be all we rely upon. In this case, we planned four implants. Three went in at >35 Ncm. One of them was a spinner. We didn't have much bone to work with, so the guide was taken off and a tilted implant was placed free-hand so we could immediately load. . 4 months later, that spinner ended up failing and we removed it. Good thing we had that free-hand implant...case is now at 1.5 years and the patient loves his mandibular implant-supported prosthesis. . #prosthodontics #prosthodontist #prosth #dentist #dental #dentistry #odontologia #stomatology #implants #implantdentistry #implantology #guidedsurgery #straumann #allon4 #fullarchfriday #straumanncares

What directions do you give the surgeon in terms of how much to tilt the implant? Or are you relying more on the surgeons experience?
